I found this lamp in the garage today and decided to give it a makeover! Of course, I didn't take before pics but it was cream, dirty and pretty banged up. I took it apart and hot glued the fabric to the plastic bit and them glued the trim. The only thing I did wrong was that I didn't account for the fabric making the shade fit a bit tighter on the metal frame pieces. It all worked out in the end tho and here are the results!







Thanks for looking! I am thinking about painting the base of the lamp red, but I need to wait for daylight Smiley
