Revamp A Lamp

Really quick - simple, in fact.  Revamp a lamp.  Make it suit your style & decor. 

Here's an example:

I found this lamp at a local thrift store for $5 (no shade, mind you)
Found a black shade at a garage sale for $1 (basic, no character, just blah, but will do)
Added a feather boa to trim the shade for $5 at a local party store....

Voila!  It sits on my sofa table & never fails - I always get compliments when others visit.  EVEN my husband, who is a no foofoo (I'm pretty sure that's just a southern word) kinda guy, loves it.  Best part about it?  It cost ELEVEN bucks.  So, don't go spend crazy amounts of money on lighting, Fancy Pants, go revamp a lamp!


  1. ahhhh Heather..didn't know your were such a "fancy nancy"..[t rhymes lol] I learned long long ago these things are not so imp to Mr. T and if I am happy and love it he's oook with it.Also Ill tell you a secret: He is proud of you & admires your talent-betcha he even brags about it to others..Good job girl.

  2. Whew! THAT'S a HUGE compliment - two of the sweetest, most precious people I've EVER met... from the bottom of my heart. Love & hugs to you both. So thankful for you both, and the blessed times we have had....
