Make This: Mod Neon Lamp

Today, I’m sharing a colorful DIY I just finished up for Curbly.

I found this old, brown lamp base at a thrift store for $5 (‘before’ photos here) and gave it a new look. It looks like a pretty straight forward project, and it was for the most part. But I spent way more time on it than I normally would have – making sure everything was done the ‘right’ way so I can put it to good use in a high traffic area of the house.

Follow this link for the full step by step instructions and photo tutorial. P.S. I added geometric washi tape accents to the lampshade too (not shown here) if you want to take a look. I’d love to know which version you like better.

I also wrote a couple of other posts this week for Curbly… 

1. A modern before and after kitchen remodel (love the ‘after’ on this one, but some people prefer the ‘before’)

2. And a second before and after (are you sensing a theme this week?) that involves an old Seattle garage and a new, minimal living space.

That’s it for me this week. Have a great weekend!
