How To Get A High End Look For Less - Table Lamps Part 2

This lamp is one of my all time favorite "before & after" projects...I simply love how beautifully the base turned out!


And a great lamp begs for an exceptional shade.


A little trim and this delightful fabric should do the job.


Now I just have to wait for the fabric to arrive...

  4. I am loving those lamps! And that fabric and ribbon is going to set them off, although I do love the shades as is! So, I see that brown and green are part of the color scheme!

  10. This should really bring some character and a nice pattern to the room. I think the ribbon will bring things nicely together. Looking forward to see how this one turns out (as usual ;-)

  16. Janell,
    Dagi Mara's comment says, "The lamp looks wonderful! I love the before-after projects!"

    I spend some time living in Cologne. Had to learn a bit of Deutsch!

  24. I LOVE what you've done with these lamps! The new color is perfect. Where do you find all of the great pendant-style shades? I've seen a few here and there (and I agree on Lamps Plus being a good source) but I can't believe Target, Ikea and what not have not figured out that they are the style everyone is looking for :).
