Do you have lamps that you don't use because you don't like the look ....
Updated: Apr 19
There is an easy change to update the look. First you can paint the base. I have owned this lamp for years and since it is traditional /transitional I have kept it. I loved the base but was tired of the dark color. I grabbed some materials: Fabric and trim for the lamp shade makeover. I measured the surface of the lamp shade to figure out the fabric about.
Half a yard of fabric and trim 1 yard (always buy extra so you don't run out)
Paint (Flat )
I have a cutting board for cutting fabric on top of and a rotary cutter but scissors work perfectly.
*If you see the lamp above , I decided to leave the base the brown to give it contrast.
In the video I described how I applied the fabric . I did cut panels to go on each side of the shade. This is a “no see” project. I hot glued the fabric onto the top of shade and along the binding of each side . I folded the bric in to give it a finished look.
