I purchased this lamp at Salvation Army for $5.99. The shade came from a local discount retailer for $4.99. It had a nice shape but was covered in a ugly velvet-like stripe.
I took the lamp apart, cleaned it and primed it. I also removed the fabric off the lamp shade and recovered it with white cotton that I already had on hand.
After the primer was all the way dry, I spray painted the lamp parts a several coats of soft yellow. The paint cost $3.89. Once the yellow was dry a gave it a coat of clear gloss.
A unique lamp for less than $15!
