    i have passed up lamps before that are missing the harps….. because laziness!!! it always seemed like one of those stupid little tasks i didn’t know how to do. so i am glad you shared.

    1. It really is a pretty easy project. Made it a little harder because I had to replace the pipe. Without that it would have been even easier.

    Love the new shades! And good job figuring out how to make the switch; I would have given up the first time it got complicated 😉

    1. LOL I was tempted but I like the lamps to I continued 😉

  3. I cannot believe that you posted this on your blog today of all days! I just bought a lamp that I need to add a harp to but wasn’t sure if that was even something that could be done. Thank you. thank you. thank you!

    1. Oh that’s awesome! Good luck!

    Oh my gosh now I feel foolish for not buying lamps without it! Great tutorial. 🙂

  5. It looks like a simple task and easy to do! Love the idea!

    You’re right, the lamps have a more balanced feel to them now. Good on ya! The artwork is so clever, but you’re right, Christmas is over and it’s time to try something else. Perhaps like cattle, grass prairie, bison…? There’s a lot going on in that little corner, so I guess less is more. 😉

  7. Look like a small but creative idea for the lamp. It is also easy to do too. I think I will give my lamp a try like this. Thanks for your idea.

  9. Hi Julia, thanks for this ideas. I love when I find a project that turns out to be much easier than anticipated! I feel like such a pro! haha!

  10. I just wanted to say the entire Vintage StyleLiving staff loves your blog! I love the way you walk us through adding a harp and absolutely love what you have done with that room especially the mantle!
