Pink Petals Lampshade

I inherited this cute little lamp from my friend when she moved to *sniff, sniff* Texas.  The shade had a hole burned in it (having a late night stogie, Susan?  You can't hide your habits with evidence like this!  haha) so  after covering a lampshade with white flower petals and spraying it silver last week, I decided to use some of these hot pink flowers I yanked off from a cheap Hawaiian lei I bought at a flea market.  I hot glued them on and gave the lamp a quick new paint job.  Since I didn't have hot pink paint, I mixed together a little red, rose pink, and white to get my color.  And here's what we got:

I wish the shade was whiter... maybe I should cover it with a few more flowers so the off white doesn't show through at all.  Yup, probably should....  but probably won't.  Unless you want to buy it, and won't buy it any other way!!  $12 - come and get it! :)
