Step 1

This is the lamp on my side of the bed. I love the lamp, but I've always hated the shade. I'm also oddly terrified of the process by which you recover a lampshade, so I finally decided to try just recoloring it. I think the test patch turned out pretty cool, and it looks better with the light then I expected, so I think thiss plan is a go. I'm going to glue some ribbon around the top and bottom when I'm done, but I haven't figured out which one yet. I'd also like to spray the actual lamp part silver eventually, and rewire it so that it's happier with modern lightbulbs, but those are much farther down my do list.
