I have been reading alot about recovering and renovating lamps lately On blogs like this and I realy wanted to give this a try.
Firstly, I had this beautiful piece of wood that I found at the tipshop. It was solid wood and I think it may of once been a leg off a small table. I had been using it outside with candles on top and it looked lovely however I felt it was wasted and it wasnt realy working outside.
I decided to paint it white and slightly rub it back. Im kicking myself that I didnt take any before/after shots of this. My vey clever husband drilled holes in the base to put my lamp cords.
Secondly, I found an old lampshade at an op-shop that wasnt the prettiest,In fact it was quite blah!... but it was the perfect shape for what I was wanting.
Sorry this wasnt the best tutorial, but check out this FaNtAsTiC tutorial here
that helped me with my lamp.
~Have fun xo
