Lamp Re-do

This lamp was really fun, and I adore it! I made it for a little craft fair booth I did this summer. I didn't make it to sell, just to decorate my booth...but I could have sold it in a second because I had sooooo many people ask me if it was for sale. When I said no they asked if I would sell it anyway. I guess I maybe should have! A lot of ladies came into the booth to inspect the lamp and see how I did it. They were amazed to find out that it was really fast and simple. But your not surprised right? I am all about fast and simple! Oh, and ruffles! I have the lamp in my babies nursery now. It is a perfect addition to her sweet little room.

Here is what the lamp looked like before....BORING!

I ruffled 3 strips of fabric. Then I simply hot glued each strip onto the shade. That's it! Easy huh?

Then I just spray painted the lamp base. I LOVE spray paint. It's like magic!

The great thing about this is that you can make it to match any color scheme. There is such cute fabric out there- you could make a lamp shade and pillows to match! I love anything you can customize with fabric. It gives a room a splash of color and personality.
