I bought two trays, at the dollar store for $7.00 each. The bottom has four tiles, placed together to make the grape. I did not like the finish, tray makeover time.

Madeover two trays, by painting gloss black.

I bought two lamp shades for $9.00 each, and bought four yards of beaded ribbon for $12.00. I used liquid stitch fabric glue to add the beaded ribbon around the top and bottom edges of the lamp shade.

I started gluing the beaded ribbon around the bottom edge.

I had these two lamps for twenty years, I found them in the attic, cleaned them up, sprayed a black primer coat on them. Then hand brushed gloss black paint on the lamps.

Makeover lamps with shade. I madeover two lamps and shades for my end tables.

  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that lamp. It’s amazing what you can do with a can of black spray paint. I go a little crazy with it myself.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. The floor mat does hold up. My kids walk on it with football cleats, motocross boots, dirty tennis shoes and my husband has walked across it once or twice with work boots. Put a couple coats of poly. on it. When it gets dirty just take it outside and hose it down with the garden hose.

    Now I’m off to read the rest of your blog.

  2. The lamps are gorgeous. The tiled trays really knocked me over! I love them all. You have such great ideas. Have a wonderful week!!


  3. wonderful makeovers of the lamp and tray! Everyone has made me start to look at things differently.. I am looking for potential in items now!

  4. Katherine, Love the way you revamped these two ladies! They look tremendous! I love the lamp bases too. Lamp makeovers are some of my favorite items I like to tackle. I used to think I’d like to do it as a side business, maybe someday! 8=) You did tremendous! ~CC Catherine

  5. I so want to do this exact same thing for a couple two or three lamps in OUR home…you’ve inspired me once again Katherine.

    Thanks for the ‘know how’ blog. It’s great.

  7. These are so cute. I didn’t know the Dollar Store had these kind of trays. Have to go check that out. Love lamp shades, I have had things for years and never used them. Make me want to go searching through some boxes. Hugs, Rosemarie

    I want to thank you for being such a caring, sweet bloggy friend, Katherine. I get a feeling I can’t quite put into words when I read a post or your comments on my blog. There is just something extra and wonderful that I can’t put my finger on.
