Remember that vintage turquoise lamp that I brought home from the yard sale yesterday?

It was fantastic on its own but needed a shade before I could put it to use. I bought a harp for $3 and a simple white lampshade at Goodwill for $2.

I covered the shade with burlap and made a burlap sleeve to conceal the yellowed electrical cord.

My whole lamp cost next to nothing and adds a fun splash of color as well as extra light to the guest room.
