Two Dollar Lamp Makeover


(After)


Lamp makeovers are so much fun.  I found this lamp at Walmart.  You couldn't beat the price, $12.95.  I could easily pay more than that second hand shopping.  I also picked up the red drum shade there as well.


(Before)



 My original plan was to spray the base Kelly Green.  I may still do that but for summer, I like the white.  It has an understated nautical feel.  





It was nice but, a little boring.  So, I picked up a spool of white grosgrain ribbon and hot glued a stripe around the top and around the bottom.





Then, to make it even better, I gave it a twin.






 This lamp "makeover" cost $2 and took less than 5 minutes.  You will probably see these again, when I decide to go for the green.  

Here are a few fabulous lamp makeovers:














Aren't they great?

    I have six shadeless vintage lamps. They are just sitting there naked because I can't find shades I like. You have inspired me to get a bit crafty!
