Lately, I have been browsing the plethora of adorable Franklin,TN antique shops and gathering a lot of inspiration. Among the treasures were tons of unique desk lamps – which is exactly what I needed to go with my revamped desk!
Well, these beautiful antique shop lamps were not in the ole budget,
so I had to get funky with my GW lamp.
Redoing the base was simple: Krylon spray paint in Almond.
For the shade, I had bigger plans (details to follow) that required a tad more elbow grease.
First, I sprayed the frame a light yellow. Next, I cut up some random fabric and burlap scraps, then tied them around the top and base of the lamp shade frame.
And now she lives happily on my desk!
I also love that I can rotate the shade to get a glimpse of different fabrics.
This was super simple and only took about an hour.
