This petite desk lamp was a hand-me-down from a friend at work. I decided I wanted to use it in my new, updated bedroom decor and turned it into a fun DIY project. Another great bonus was a pair of plain white lamp shades that were a thrifted 2 for $5 find at a local consignment store. Since they were such a great deal, I bought two types of ribbon to add a little feminine detail to each shade and now have the freedom to switch them up whenever I’d like. Add a fresh coat of white paint to the base and this little shabby chic lamp has become the perfect accessory to brighten up the room.
