Upcycled Wire Lamp Shade
This old lamp had seen better days yet it still worked; there was no reason to throw it away when all it needed was some upcycling!
I updated it with some barbwire I cut from a fence on the property.
Needed for this project:
- Lampshade frame
- Sand paper
- Barbwire and wire to attached to frame
- Wire cutters
- Spray paint
After removing the shade covering, I sanded the frame a bit to make sure no glue remained.
Next, I attached the barbwire to the frame using pieces of wire. After the barbwire was attached to the frame I sprayed the frame using a metallic gold paint.
Lastly, I attached small LED Dewdrop lights to the barbwire.
Here’s the new lamp! The rustic look is perfect for our sunroom!
