This quick 5 minute lampshade makeover is very easy to do. It’s been a few years since its original makeover and it was time for a change.
So I dove into my thrifted scarf stash and found…
this little beauty.
Look at all those lovely colours… in one scarf.
When I saw it in the thrift store a few years ago it reminded me of stained glass.
I trimmed off all the ends because I know I’ll never be using it as an actual scarf.
I removed the previous scarf piece and here’s the bare lampshade.
I simply wrapped the scarf around the lampshade base.
The scarf is stretchy so I pulled it around how I wanted it, cut off what I didn’t need, and secured the ends together with safety pins, which weren’t visible once I pouffed a bit.
Here it is all done… easy peasy.
I think it looks so pretty all lit up.
This is what the lampshade looked like before the lamp makeover a couple of years ago, when it became…
this during my guest room makeover.
And now it looks like this with the light off.
And like this with the light on. In person you can really see the different colours much better.
I love that, like the last lampshade cover, this can be so easily changed when the mood strikes me… because I can almost guarantee that it’ll strike me in another couple of years. 🙂
I love repurposing scarves in my decor and crafting projects. I usually find them at thrift stores for $1 or less and they can be repurposed in so many ways. I always pick up unusual ones when I see them… like this one, which I’d never seen before and haven’t seen since.
I always knew I’d find the perfect way to repurpose it someday and I think I did. It’s so fun and colourful! 🙂

Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
