Revamp A Lamp, Part 3: My Daughter's Lamp

Hello, all!  Sorry I missed you last week... I was on vacation with my mom & sister, enjoying some much needed girl time!

Anyway, the last of my "Revamp a Lamp" posts will showcase the lamp I have in my daughter's room.  It was an easy "revamp".  I purchased an old, 60's style lamp at an estate sale for $10!  The column was a gold leaf, and the shade was gold, as well.  It was dated, but definitely still had "good bones".  To redo the lamp, I simply sprayed over the gold leafing on the column, to make it a nice white base.  Then, I wrapped the shade with a beautiful brown paisley material that has great texture - a satin base with velvet paisley detail.  I added some burlap and mauve fabric roses, and vintage buttons.  Lastly, I added a pink grosgrain ribbon edging to the top of the shade for detail.  I love how pretty it sits atop a column side table built by my hubby.  It sheds just enough light on our rocking chair that I read "night, night" stories to her in.
