Before and After: Salvaged Lamp and Shade

This is what I had to work with...

I stripped the original lampshade and recovered it with burlap (using hot glue) :)...

For the base of the lamp, I had to work a bit longer. I had to take apart the whole lamp to put on a new lamp harp (this holds up the shade). Then I pre-painted the base white.

To finish it, I just spraypainted the base green and added a brown ribbon to the top.
