When I purchased our new to us dresser ($20) from a sweet lady on Kijiji she asked me if I would like to accept two free lamps with my purchase …um YES! Okay they are really quite out of date with a floral pattern and a brass bottom. I can change that. I like their shape. They are substantial.
I am in the middle of the cheapest …uh…I mean least expensive master bedroom re-decoration in the history of master bedroom re-decorations. I asked my husband. What is my budget? He pretty much said “ZERO”. Well, honey that is not realistic…we’ll see…
Back to my kick-ass lamps!

I had the idea that I would paint them glossy white. I did not like the look and/or the finish so I then decided on recovering the entire lamp bases in rope.
The supplies that I needed:
- Sisal Rope (lots – 100′ per lamp base)
- Hot Glue (lots)
- Patience (lots)
- 2 x lamp shades
They are going to flank our bed in our master bedroom.
The next project to tackle…the night stands…
Oh and “honey can you build me a headboard in your spare time?”! 😛
