See how dirty it is??
I carried this to my craft area in the basement for a makeover. I wasn't sure what I would find to give it an update, but I had plenty of things in my "bag of stuff".
In fact, this burlap ribbon was the exact width I needed.
All I had to do was use the glue gun and glue it around the shade.
I had to gather it at the top of the shade in a couple of places.
The base of the lamp was a beige crackle finish, so I painted it a light aqua with acrylic craft paint.
I think it makes a cute addition to this tabletop vignette.
It repeats the aqua of these vintage jars.
I've had these sweet cupids for a very long time, and still love them.
We all love old canning jars, don't we??
I like the lamp so much better with its new color base, and spiffy chevron shade.
This project took just a few minutes, and cost absolutely nothing as I already had everything.
Have you done any frugal or free makeovers recently?
