From Pineapple Lamp to Chic Memo Stand

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.

Swing Arm Lamp Makeover

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.

Drab to Fab Scalloped Lamp

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! pig and paint before

Country Rooster Makeover

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.

Lamp Makeover from Wine Corks

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!
