I recently bought two lamps at a garage sale. They are really nice, and they even came with light bulbs! They are not quite my style, so I gave them a little DIY love! Here is the before.
I spray painted them white and bought some little lampshades at target! The lampshades are pretty small and with how skinny the lamp is they look disproportionate.
Here is what I did:
I had some left over linen from a project I was working on. I used those strips to make a no-sew ruffle around the bottom of the lamp with just hot glue!
I added a little bit of ribbon in the middle so you didn’t notice the pressed places in the fabric from the glue. I had this ribbon on hand so I just used that, but I am sure there are many other more amazing options your could choose from.
And just that little bit of fabric made the lamp shades look so much more proportional! I love the roughness of the fringy edges. I probably could have been a little more precise with the straightness of the ribbon, but their my lamp shades so crooked it is.
Anyway, so that is my no-sew lamp makeover! Hope you like it! I know it makes my room look so happy and custom!
