Crystal Lamp – Repurposed

Quite a while back I bought a pretty lamp through one of the auction sites I like to frequent for about $2.00. I knew I wanted to put it in the craft room but I hadn’t really decided if I was going to leave it as is, or “embellish” it lol.

I’m sure you can guess which direction I went in!

Because it was an old lamp, Chris rewired it for me before I got started. Thank you Chris lol!

I had some really nice beaded pearl “ribbon” that I thought would be perfect for the lamp, along with some off white lace, pink ribbon, a new lamp shade and my dreaded glue gun!

I started by glueing strips of the beaded pearl ribbon around each of the metal bands on the lamp.

Then I moved on to the lamp shade.

The lace I had turned out to be the perfect width for the lamp shade!

I glued it around the top of the shade, starting and stopping at the seam at the back of the shade.

Then glued a longer strip of the beaded pearl ribbon around the top, covering the edge of the lace and again starting and stopping at the seam at the back.

I put the shade back on the lamp so I could make sure it was centred before glueing a small pink bow near the top of the shade.

And this is my girly repurposed lamp for the craft room!!!
