My DIY brain started spinning as soon as I saw these beauties and I knew they were the perfect blank canvas that could be customized to fit any home. So I brought them home and stared at them for a while until inspiration struck. I decided a black and gold theme would work well with these lamps.
High-end Makeover for a $1 Lamp
A simple yet classy looking makeover for a $1 Dollar Tree Lamp that can be done in under an hour.
Apply peel and stick wallpaper to the inside of the lampshade
For the gold part of this hack, I went back to my trusty Very Berry Sticker peel and stick wallpaper. Here is the lampshade before and after I had applied the wallpaper on the inside of the drum. I would recommend using a textured wallpaper like this one so that you can easily blend little pieces of the wallpaper over the first layer in case you make a mistake.
Add wallpaper to lampbase
I also added a strip of the same gold wallpaper to the base of the lamp.
Add wallpaper to the outside of the lampshade in any geometric pattern
I cut little strips of the gold wallpaper and started to randomly put them onto the shade and came up with this final look which I absolutely love!
Final Look After
Here is the lamp in our bedroom. I just love how it complements our gold side table perfectly.
