DIY Lamp Shade – My husband loves this hideous metal floor lamp we found several years ago… It just wasn’t working for me!  I did not want to spend any money on this lamp! In fact, I really wanted to throw it away or donate it so what can I do to spruce it up a bit. As I stand on the deck watching the birds and looking at the pool, it dawns on me! I’ll use an old hanging pot I have!  This really was a quick and easy lamp shade!  I painted the basket with Rustoleum Hammered Spray Paint.

 

 

Then I decorated it with a little ribbon and some beads.

 

 

Here it is in the guest bedroom…  I can live with this!
