Covering Up an Ugly Lamp

Over at Stow & Tell U, Amy had an old lamp that could reeeeeally use a makeover.  When she discovered a yarn collection that mimicked the natural fibers of days gone by, she was inspired to use it to give the lamp a new look.  “This yarn is on the thicker side in terms of yarn gauge, and it has a rich, organic texture that really caught my eye,” she explains.

Amy’s plan was simple.  She painted both the lamp and lamp shade with chalk paint.  Once dry, she applied a small amount of glue to each section of the lamp before wrapping yarn around it.  Amy kept glueing and wrapping until the lamp was completely covered with yarn.  It looks amazing!
