Free Lamp Re-do and Chair Upholstery Fabric

This is the giant cement lamp that you never thought you'd own. And friends, this piece of work is SO heavy that it took me two tries with some major "from the quads" lifting to get this thing in the back of dad's truck. It is heavy. And UGLY. Or it was.

Here she is after a coat of paint (primer & poly too)...give a new lease on life. The part I finished today was doing something with the stained lampshade. Buying a new one defeated the purpose of getting a free lamp. But I got the crazy idea to cover the shade with "Make it Stone" textured paint in a cream color and it turned out!
It looks a little weird in this picture (below) but I think it looks cooler in person.
Here is on of the chalky painted chairs (one of the four matching). I bought the fabric to cover the seats of the other two chairs that have removable seats.  What do you think?  It has some of the red and green tones of the couch that will be in the adjoining room. 
That's my progress...what are you working on?
