Whimsical Lamp Makeovers

I have the best thrift stores near my home and very often I can find lamps for $5 each for my DIY projects.  These ginger jar lamps were perfect for this whimsical makeover! I know the stripes aren't perfect but the lamps were just too heavy for my old record player hack.  Instead, I opted for using my lazy susan which was just fine.  I also ended up loving the wonky stripes a bit more.  There is something truly "handmade" about them!  Go nuts with fabrics and trims for your shades and just have fun!  For $5 you can experiment, right?!  Stay creative, awesome friends, and always 
Make Your Mark!
I used DecoArt Gloss Enamels for this project!
We all need a little more color right now!
Got the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics!
Wonky stripes are just fine with me!  
Grab your lazy susan to help you out with this!
