The things you can accomplish with a glue gun never cease to amaze me. Midwest Living has taken a stark white lamp and turned it into a colorful and graphic statement piece. By updating an existing lampshade using low cost materials like ribbon you can get a whole new look without having to spring for a new shade which could cost upwards of $20. Also, it looks like this entire DIY can be done in an afternoon. Even better! Choose colors to go with your other decor, take your time lining up the stripes, and you should be good to go.
