I changed my living room and my table lamps won't match, they were peach ceramic. I cleaned the ceramic with alcohol and then I put a thin layer of Elmers' glue and, with tissue paper which I crushed with my hands forming a ball, unfold the paper and press on the glued surface all around. After it is completely dried, paint it with a water based stain in any color you like. I first painted it with white. After completely dried, I used a maple stain, and finally a darker color. It came out wonderful and I can use my lamps again. They look like I just bought them.

Hi I was looking for a lamp shade for our living room ours got killed, I looked all around like WalMart but could not find one anywhere. Went to JCPenny outlet store they have an upstairs and a return section. Their I found a beautiful lamp shade it is gold color with butterflys in gold and little beads and I only spent around 20 or less (I think it was 5 maybe can't remember) but what I am saying is look around you will not believe what you can find.
Oh yeah, please post a picture.
