20 DIY Lamp Makeovers

diy-lamp-makeovers
I bought a lamp for my family room at the thrift store ages ago. I stuck the ugly thing on the side table, thinking I would do a fabulous makeover on it within  a few days. Yah right. It’s been sitting there for m0nths, mocking me every time I walk past it.

I’ve decided it’s time to change my ugly duckling lamp into something beautiful.  I want something a little less time consuming than my flower lamp shade in the living room. It’s gorgeous, but it took me ages to complete.

I turned to the internet and Pinterest for some inspiration. Hmm, I’m not sure if it was helpful or harmful. I found so many pretty lamp makeovers that now I’m having a hard time deciding how I want to finish my lamp!
