Another Shabby To Chic Vintage Lamp Makeover

A Shabby To Chic Vintage Lamp Makeover With A Feminine Touch

Hi All,

I love revamping old lamps and have done quite a few of them recently. Today I would like to share another pretty vintage lamp makeover that turned out really sweet. I love vintage milk glass, especially vintage hobnail lamps. I found this one while out treasure hunting.
Vintage Hobnail Lamp

Vintage Milk Glass Hobnail Lamps are perfect for a cottage style home. I wanted to do something a little different with this little lamp makeover. I pulled out a can of my favorite petal pink spray paint and gave the base a few coats it. I wrapped the shade in a pretty floral fabric that reminds me of vintage barkcloth.

I trimmed the edges of the shade in gimp and added a couple of buttons to the seam to dress it up a bit and finish it off.

Shabby Chic Floral Lampshade

I love this sweet Upcycled Pink Hobnail Lamp and the shade just makes it pop. I can just picture it on a bedside table in a Shabby Chic inspired bedroom, perhaps a little girl’s room. This vintage lamp makeover was really simple and something anyone can tackle.

Before and After Vintage Lamp Makeover

On Another Note:

One of the things on my “To Do List” for 2015 is turning my half of the garage into a clean, organized place to work. A proper design studio. Right now it is cramped and always an unorganized mess. Today I snagged a couple of base cabinets that were headed for the trash. My brother rescued them for me and I ran over to pick them up.  I also stopped by my local Habitat For Humanity Resale shop and found some old shelving that will become a counter top for a mere $6. I am going to use them to create one of three work stations.  This is the first step to keeping my New Year’s Resolution!
