Garage Sale Lamp meets Ann Taylor…

So, you remember the $5 lamp right?? Came from a Garage sale….
This is what is turned into…
It is like it went into Ann Taylor for a makeover–am I right, or am I right?!?! I know! I love it!!!
I used Rustoleum Strawflower spray paint (I did a primer coat first)
For the shade—I covered it with a grey suit fabric (1 yard) it was a super large shade!
I hot glued the fabric inside the shade on the top…then did the same to the bottom.
 I cleaned up the edges after I was done gluing.
I got some 3 inch ribbon at JoAnn Fabric in the same gold color as the lamp.
I wrapped the top and secured a bow. I hot glued (just dots along the top) to secure the ribbon to the top of the lamp shade. Pretty cute huh!!
