Do you remember the two lamps I got at the flea market last Saturday? I only paid $1.00 apiece for them.
Look at it now!!
I gave the base a coat of red spray paint after I taped off the electrical parts. It took the paint wonderfully.
First, I stripped all of the fabric off of the wire shade.
Then, I took 1" strips of torn fabric and knotted it at the top of the shade, pulled it taunt to the bottom and knotted it again. Then I snipped the fabric off leaving about a 2" tail at the top and the bottom.
I got this idea from Cain's Creative Cabin. Dawn made a lamp like this and I was blown away and knew I had to make one for myself.
Thanks Dawn for the inspiration!!
Till next time, Judy
