Be inspired to Be Clever!!

So, I got this $5 lamp at a Garage sale….

This is what is turned into…

It is like it went into Ann Taylor for a makeover–am I right, or am I right?!?! I know! I love it!!!

I used Rustoleum Strawflower spray paint (I did a primer coat first)

For the shade—I covered it with a grey suit fabric (1 yard) it was a super large shade!

I hot glued the fabric inside the shade on the top…then did the same to the bottom.

I cleaned up the edges after I was done gluing.

I got some 3 inch ribbon at JoAnn Fabric in the same gold color as the lamp.

I wrapped the top and secured a bow. I hot glued (just dots along the top) to secure the ribbon to the top of the lamp shade. Pretty cute huh!!
Be inspired to be clever!!
