Remember those shades that I redid for Nadia's bedroom? Much better than the before.
She also needed a lamp for her desk, and I mentioned in this post how that I had refurbished an old lamp I had for her bedroom.
This is how to renew the lampshade and painted the lamp base. I used the same method for the lamp above (plus the hanging beads). Click on the pictures to see the instructions.
And to use the last piece of fabric left I did the same with a can of peanuts, this time cutting the fabric at the edge and finishing it with a ribbon matching the fabric. Nadia uses it as a pencil holder. The method is similar and the pictures self-explanatory, click on them to see a larger version.
Since I already had all the materials used for this project the lamp and pencil holder were basically free. Free, as you probably noticed already, is a price I love.
