Upcycled Lamp

At It’s Overflowing, Aimee had a lamp that was looking a bit tired.  She perked it up with a new lampshade.

Aimee already had this fabric leftover from another project at her house.  She measured, cut, and used fabric adhesive to attach new fabric onto the old lampshade.  The effect is a complete transformation:  the plain-Jane lamp now looks like a brand new boutique purchase!

Aimee offers an excellent tutorial on redoing a lampshade at It’s Overflowing.
