An Easy Personalized and Painted Lamp Shade

There is something so satisfying about taking a generic piece of furniture or an accessory and making it completely your own. Earlier we featured an easy way to update ordinary dishes. Now here's a great way to update a boring white pendant lamp using a little more than some paint and creativity.

Nichole of Sparrow's Nest needed two things for her kitchen: lighting and color. Inspired by an expensive pendant lamp she had seen, she went to her local Target, spent $20 on a drum shade and painted her own version. What a great way to add an unexpected pop of color to any room!

What is your favorite revamp of an average, off the shelf product in your home?
