Wow! I feel like I really got my two-days worth out of this past weekend. I was more productive than I ever would have predicted. I cranked out 3 projects and am thisssss close to being done with the guest bathroom. Yessss!
I’m not spilling the beans on the bathroom just yet. That’ll come later this week. Today I wanted to follow-up on a post from last week -
Remember the jar lamp I scored while antiquing? I was just about to throw out the old, dusty red shade in a marathon cleaning session Saturday morning… but then I had an idea!
Step 1: Have second thoughts as you’re jusssst about to toss the dusty old shade in the trash.
Step 2: Realize you have nothing to lose and start tearing the fabric (and liner) off the wire frame.
Step 3: Dig around in closet and find some leftover drop cloths that you already washed and ironed from another project. Tear into strips and knot around wire to start.
Step 4: Wrap, wrap and wrap some more. When you get to the end of the strip, just knot another on!
Step 5: Finish off with one last knot, flip it over and step back to admire your handiwork.
Want to see it on the lamp? I thought you might!
It’s a little shabby…. a little chic (I hope). I love the subtle frayed edges of the fabric. Best part – it was FREE!
So what do you think? Not bad for a $9 investment, right?
Can’t wait to spill the beans on some of my other weekend projects! I hope you love them!
