A new lamp is a dynamite way to change up the look of a room. But it's not really sustainable to go buy a new light fixture every season. If you can handle a glue gun or a paint brush, however, it's totally reasonable.
I found this lamp base at a local thrift store for $4. I wrapped the base with jute rope and secured with hot glue. I had a plain white shade already that I covered in leftover fabric from a chair project. That glue gun is a handy tool.
Easy-peesy and took only about an hour to make a big impact.
Got any quick refresh ideas? I'd love to hear them.
