Need some lamp shades!

I bought this set of lamps at a garage sale for $6. This was my first paint with a spray can job and it turned out really well, although you can't tell because the pictures (taken with my phone) are so bad. I used a metal finish paint and it looks really cool, again you can't tell so you'll have to take my word for it. Super easy project and I'd use these lamps BUT they all need new lamp shades and I'm finding that I almost would have been better off buying 3 new lamps because it would have been cheaper. The cost of a nice lampshade these days is ridiculous! May as well just buy the whole lamp! Thought of other alternatives like using the crappy ones that came with the lamps and covering them with fabric BUT thought of that after I had already thrown them in the dumpster! On the look out for cheap lamp shades!
