Nothing that a little paint won't fix. I chose Benjamin Moore "Bird of Paradise" paint leftover from another project for its coral-orange color and began lathering on the paint using a foam brush.
Nothing complicated here - just make sure the shade is covered fully so that no light gets through. I held it up to the sun a few times to check.
Here's the finished project. I really like them next to our falling leaves. Just need to let them dry.
And here they are in our living room. I think I need to change the pillows and we'll be ready to bring on Fall!
