When I started out remodeling our spare bedroom I bought two lamps from the thrift store. I paid $2.50 for the short one and $5 for the tall one.
I took what I learned from Ryan Taylor when we redid my office lamps here. So first I taped the cords and hardware and then I spray painted them with primer – in this case, automobile primer because it was what we had.
After I spray painted them white, I bought $10 shades and hot glued fabric to them.
I had to pleat the fabric on this shade because the top and bottom were not the same width – deceptive little shade.
(If you look closely you’ll see the shade we chose for the walls. I promise we’ll reveal the rest of the room soon!)
