I bought this cute little lamp at a garage sale and I loved the lines of the shade and the colour. It was the perfect piece to add a little bit of ambience and light for a small corner. But it always looked a bit unfinished.
I wanted to do a little touch up, but nothing too dramatic or requiring a lot of commitment. Changing any piece of décor always requires a certain level of commitment and I wanted this piece to remain versatile.
I went to the dollar store while visiting Toronto and picked up some ribbons. One of them was a thin brown metallic braided ribbon which would be perfect for the lampshade.
What you need:
This project took literally an hour at most. A quick and easy decor touch up for when the little one is napping.
Hold the ribbon for a little bit after gluing it just so it has a chance to stick in place.
A nicely, finished piece, in neutral tones ready for any room.
