One of the easiest ways to transform the look of a lamp is to change the shade. I never loved the shades that came on my buffet lamps that I just repainted. The ones I have had my eye on for some time are from Ballard's. They were more expensive than I was willing to pay, but they finally went on sale and I had an extra 15% off code to use. I was surprised to find these had been delivered while we were gone. Nothing like coming home to a box to be opened.
Here are the before shades.
This is the toffee check fabric that matches my bench and shams that are also from Ballard's.
I love this look so much more.
Someone had mentioned in the post about the lamps transformation that they liked the tassel hanging from them. That is actually the pull chain that turns the lamp on.
