One of the quickest ways to update a room is to spruce up a lamp in your home and today I wanted to show you some easy and affordable ways to transform a lampshade from Goodwill.
I love these ideas so much, in fact, that I have plans to add a new lamp or two to our space now for Spring!
I hope you will be as inspired as I am by these bloggers and their incredible lampshade makeovers.
Add a Fun Print With Leggings
You can find a pair of leggings in just about any pattern or color combination right now at just about any store.
Consider snagging a pair of inexpensive leggings and using this material to stretch over a lampshade in your house to add a trendy color or pattern to your home without a big financial commitment.
Add an Adorable Ping Pong Detail
I am a big fan of ping pong craft ideas and love this detail on a lampshade.
You can use fabric paints to match a room in your home and then glue on this three dimensional detail for a fun look for any game room.
Get the scoop on this DIY Ping Pong Lampshade from I Love to Create here.
Your local thrift store is the perfect place to hunt for lampshades that have beautiful bones underneath their fabric exterior.
A simple removal of the fabric can create a beautiful industrial lampshade and the edition of an Edison bulb really completes the look on this easy DIY project.
Add a Fabric Detail
If you aren’t a fan of the industrial look, but have a great lampshade base to work with, consider adding your own unique touches with scraps of fabric.
Add a Feminine Touch
With simple fabric circles, glue, and a little shaping, this is the perfect craft to work on while binge-watching all of your favorite shows on television.
Since you are covering the entire lampshade in flowers, it can really breathe life into a lampshade that may have seen better days thanks to a camouflaging of rosettes.
Add a Unique Embroidered Touch
I love, love, love the look of embroidery and this DIY Constellation Lampshade from Martha Stewart is jaw-droppingly awesome.
I have been seeing constellation projects popping up on table runners and wall murals, but have fallen in love with this lampshade for my small home.
If you can’t find a navy lampshade for your project, consider covering it in navy leggings (as I showed you in our first project listed here) or hunt through the t-shirt section of a thrift shop for the perfect navy shirt to use!
