Upcycled Farmhouse Chic Lamp with Ric-Rac

I always have a few sad little lamps hanging around my house, don’t you? This one used to be purple, but a quick coat of flat black spray paint and a new shade trimmed out with a variety of Ric-Rac to match makes a world of difference. From a kid’s room to an upcycled farmhouse chic lamp, in just a few hours!

Here’s how to create an Upcycled Farmhouse Chic Lamp with Ric-Rac:

Step One

Mask off the cord and socket of the lamp with painter’s tape, then in a well-ventilated area (or outside) spray paint lamp base flat black. Apply several light coats to get the best coverage and let dry completely. Once dry, remove painter’s tape.

Step Two

Starting at the lampshade seam, apply Large Ric-Rac to the circumference with hot glue. Take your time and apply small amounts of hot glue, so the finished product looks neat and the glue does not show. Trim the end of Ric-Rac with scissors and then seal edges with hot glue, to prevent fraying.

Step Three

Repeat step two with one row of Jumbo Ric-Rac, two rows of Mini Ric-Rac, and a final row of Large Ric-Rac. I love the pattern and texture that the three different sizes of Ric-Rac give to this project.
