Christy received this pineapple lamp with a challenge from a friend: give it a makeover. At Confessions of a Serial DIYer, she says, "This was kind of cute as is, but the lighting was super dull and I have no need for a tiny lamp." So she cut the cord off and waited a few days for inspiration to strike.
At Inspiration for Moms, Laura has been working on a spruce-up of her sons room. Wanting to create a reading nook, she'd selected the bed as the perfect spot, but needed better lighting. Laura almost shelled out money for a set of new sconces, but remembered just in time that she'd be removing the wall lamps in her master bedroom for an upcoming remodel.
Jenna blogs at 24 Cottonwood Lane. She's been working on a makeover of her master bedroom, and sticking to her budget has resulted in several impressive rescues. Just take a look at what she did with her old lamps.
At Pig and Paint, Alison originally purchased this lamp many years ago, adorned with a heavy 70's rust-colored, bead-trimmed shade. Over the years she held on to it, switching out the lamp shade for the one shown in this picture, but never really loving the look. So finally she transformed it into a glamorous lamp that could live in her master bedroom!
At Creative Dominican, Becca has been working on a master bedroom makeover. Not wanting to spend a ton of money for the kind of lamps she wanted, Becca was thrilled to find these substantial brass lamps at her local Goodwill.
This lamp makeover from Liz at Love Grows Wild has a cute story to go along with it. When Liz moved into her husband's farmhouse as a newlywed, he let her have free reign with the decorating and organizing. With one exception: Liz couldn't get rid of the ugly rooster lamp made with love by her husband's uncle.
A lot of reusing and recycling went into this lamp makeover by Shannon from Madigan Made. It started with a lamp that she already had that wasn't old, just a bit boring. To give that lamp a little life, Shannon collected over 185 wine corks from friends, family, and even some local restaurants!
Elise, creator of the popular doily design chair shared here on RR, is back with another one of her rescues. She got this vintage 1980’s standing lamp from a friend about a year ago. As you can see from the bottom half, it was originally purple.
