DIY Lamps: Before & After

Lamp before and after. It's a work in progress. I'm still thinking of upgrading the lampshade by either bedazzling it with a shimmery scarf that I have or I may stencil it with a cool design or add some trim to it just to bring it up a notch. I'll post the updated look when I do it - so stay tuned;)

If you feel your room needs a quick pick-me-up, you can do it through accessories instead of buying a whole new furniture set. Sometimes, just little decor details can make a big impact. For instance, I had this lamp for quite some time and I kind of got sick of the way it looked... instead of buying a new one, I just opted to spray paint it {can also be seen here} in a bright blue color which is current and cheery, and what a difference huh?!  Really, there was nothing wrong with the lamp, plus it cost quite a few pennies when we bought it six years ago.

Changing colors of either lamps, lamp shades, pillow cases, etc, makes it easy to perk up a room-and have a new look without spending a lot of money. How about you? What DIY projects are you working on to give your space a quick pick-me-up?
