Once I completed my table makeover, I expressed my desire to makeover the lamp, shade and base included. I had a few things in mind, but I really wanted to see some texture. When I saw Centsational Girl's sisal rope bowl,
I knew that some sisal rope was needed in our home somewhere!
Here is the lamp before. The shade was boring and the base was too gold for my taste.
For the shade, I grabbed some sisal rope from Home Depot, along with my trusty glue gun.
I started gluing the rope along the back of the shade at the seam. Be careful not to use too much glue because it could melt through your lamp shade! Keep winding and gluing until you get to the top.
In addition to the sisal rope lampshade, I sprayed the base of the lamp with some oil rubbed bronze paint. I love how it looks!
It really looks like an ORB lamp.
I think the lamp really makes the room look more pulled together, and the sisal rope looks great with the wood shim sunburst!
Linking up to these fabulous parties!
