Lampshade Party!


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.
