Here are some lamps I revamped:

This is the old table lamp, bought at a flea market for $5:

This is a floor lamp I got at a lawn sale, also for $5:

 
 

Here it is with a re-covered shade:

 
 

Thanks to xcrunnergirl and stargirl52 (with the disturbing green avatar!  Wink Cheesy) for the help in posting pics!!! Also to the poster (I forget her name, sorry!) who suggested pricking pinholes in the lampshade...it IS a cool effect!!!!

Pretty lamps! I'm glad you were able to get the pictures up! They look great. I like the red table lamp. It looks very nice.  Smiley

Aw, thanks, xc!! Pink, you'll laugh when I tell you it isn't fabric but tissue paper taped up! My roommate wanted to add colour in the cheapest way possible!

You did a great job!!  What did you recover the first lamp in?  From your pic it looks like leather.

It *does* look like leather in that pic, you're right! It's one of those Fat Quarter's from Joann's. It's a navy blue background and the blue has a bit of a washed look to it, can't really describe it. It has little greyish-blue stars which is where the pinholes are...
