This lamp is not perfect, with its partially glued on base, and its stained shade.
Not to worry, though. I knew I had a shade at home that would work fine with this sweet lamp!
I bought two of these shades some time ago at WM, and they have made the rounds on various lamps. It is a perfect fit.
It sits on the bookcase that I painted with Old White chalk paint, with the turquoise back. It blends in nicely!
I'm so proud of this frugal lamp! I just love it!!
Did I throw the original stained shade away? Not on your life!!
I "fixed" it with some jute/lace ribbon, some jute twine, and a scrap of white burlap ribbon, and a hot glue gun !! It found a new spot on another lamp!
The texture added to the shade works fine with this small lamp.
So there you have it. That's how you give a thrifted lamp a new look, and make over a badly stained shade.
