This was a free lamp given to me by the guy I rent my booth space from.  He knows I like to make things over.  I painted the whole lamp out white.  I tore the outdated fabric from the shade.  I then cut long strips of a cutter hobnail chenille bedspread and tied the fabric strips in the middle of the lamp.  I really love the way this lamp turned out.  Outdated to very chic!
