Old Lamp, New Look

Updating an old lamp can be cost effective and fun. A friend of mine needed a refresh to her office and asked me to help her out. The original lamp shade was boring and worn. Since I’m known to have various fabrics laying around, I chose one that would make her space brighter.

I used 3/4s of a yard of fabric with a hot glue gun to make the new lamp come together. After gluing the fabric, I tucked the edges to the inside of the shade and glued them securely. And that was it. The entire process took about an hour. I let the glue dry over night and placed the shade on the lamp stand the next morning! Easy peasy!


*The fabric was purchased at Joann.
