Update Your Lamps!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So…..I had an okay lamp on our end table in our bedroom, but I’m never okay with “just okay”
So of course I have to update it! I found some buttons, some straws, spray paint, glue gun…..and forget about it!!!!

Level: Beginner
Time: 1-4 hours

Topic: Accessories


Don’t get me wrong, this lamp was completely FINE…..but, if you ask me, a bit plain! So let’s refurbible it a bit (yes, refirble is a word in my vocabulary!)

My aunt recently lended me a great bag of buttons:

but I didn’t want to cover the WHOLE lamp with simply buttons….I needed something that was long, cheap and flexible……STRAWS!!!! WOOT! WOOT!

So me and my bestie (my glue gun) added buttons and straws to the base of the lamp:

Once complete (about 20 minutes)…..I took it outside to spray paint metallic silver, whcih is my new fav color!

Add your fav lampshade and call it a day! This lamp is one of my fav re-do’s!

Get inspired today,
Becky
