August has turned out to be quite a ‘lampshade-y’ month for us here at Spruce. We produced several new cuties for the shop, Amanda did a step by step DIY lampshade tutorial for Design*Sponge, and Clar and I just taught a lampshade class. If you have yet to experience the pleasure of taking a class with Clar and I…allow me to show you what you have been missing.
See! Told ya! Tons of fun. Truly it was a great day. We had the perfect storm of personalities and a lot of laughter. Meredith was especially excited about this class because her mommy AND her cousin came to town for a day of lampshade education. Every shade in this class turned out beautifully. I would have gladly accepted any of these shades as a gift…you know…IF it were offered to me. I think the fact that almost everyone left the class with supplies to make another shade at home is a testament to how fun and attainable this project really is. Take a look at some of these shades after installation. Fantastic!
For this particular class I chose to make a chocolate pecan torte. This sucka was SO good! I have had two dreams about it since…and that is not a lie.
