I had to resort to scavenging unused table and floor lamps from our house. A lot of them have problems including stains on the shade. The one in my new bedroom needed help so I decided to wrap it in Baker's twine!
I started off with this little
The problem was it had this sticky stuff on it that I couldn't get off. Probably from the tag. Don't you hate when that happens?
My solution? I wrapped it in some yellow Baker's twine that I got from Pick Your Plum last month. I just hot glued the end at the bottom and wrapped it going up. Once I got to the top, I secured it with some hot glue again and wrapped it again down to the bottom to help cover up any mishaps that I mishaped.
Here is a close up of the twine. I love the pattern it created on its own.
It gives my bedroom a nice pop of yellow when most of the colors in it are blue. I'm going to have to figure out some ways to put more yellow in there, I think!
Here is the base. I considered wrapping the twine to cover all of the steel but decided against it.
One sticky lamp down, one stained lamp shade to go!
