Project Day: 2 Minute Lamp Revamp





This is the absolute quickest makeover I have ever done. I love the results. You will need:
  • 2 x long crochet table runners [ op shop finds, mine were $2.50 each ].
  • 2 x Wooden Pegs.
  • 2 Lamps - preferably white/neutral in colour.
Wrap each doiley around the lampshade and secure with a peg at the back [ so no one will see ].
Add flowers and treasures and admire your new look lamps.
Happy Mothers Day on Sunday ! You can see my "mothers day" interview with the lovely Ana from Barefoot Blessings here.
Wishing you a weekend full of smiles. Simone xx
