Love how you can take something you already have that you didn't like much anymore and turn it into something you love! That's what happened in this case.
We had a couple of small lampshades that we got as gifts at our wedding. We actually had them in our wedding registry for Pier1 Imports and back in the day they looked good but 9yrs later they were not so hot anymore. I wished I would have taken a pic before I transformed them BUT this will give you an idea of what you can do if you have a little lamp (like mine) laying around.
So, did it really cost me $1 dollar? Um, yes! Booyah! I already had the lamps and electrical tape and I bought the baskets at the end of gardening season at Walmart. They were on sale for .50 cents!
Now, if you don't have a lamp already I see some similar to mine ALL the time at the Goodwill Store...so time to go hunting DIY friend! :)
Scroll all the way down to get the shopping list and see a pic of the final product!
What you'll need:
Putting it together!
The estimated final cost for you may be a bit different but if you want to make it as cheap as mine then just add a bit of patience to your DIY by looking for sales (sometimes ROSS or Target will have some on clearance for a real bargain). Also, the electrical tape is only about $2 but if you have a friend that already has some then maybe they'll be nice to you and let you have 6 inches worth of theirs! :)
