Springtime In Paris – A DIY Eiffel Tower Lamp Makeover
This little DIY is one that I’ve been meaning to post for awhile now but I lost the before picture and have been digging around for it to no avail :( I hate when that happens, don’t you?
I found this Eiffel Tower lamp base at Goodwill a few months ago. It was black and extremely dirty but when I saw it I knew I could transform it into the perfect Christmas gift for a certain special girl.
This is a pretty good idea of what the base looked like before and it looks like they sell it at Walmart so you can make one too!
I spray painted the base with my favorite gold spray paint which completely changed its look. I actually found the brand new white shade from a different Goodwill on a separate trip!
I had the aqua pom pom trim on hand and thought it would be a perfect addition to the lamp. I simply hot glued the trim around the top and bottom of the shade.
I love the details of the lamp base and I couldn’t believe I found it in near perfect condition!
I think it’s such a cool representation of the Eiffel Tower and it looks perfect in a tween girl bedroom.
I submitted this project for the Michael’s Springtime In Paris contest so cross your fingers that I win this fabulous trip!
This is totally a DIY you can tackle so pick your favorite Paris coveting friend or family member and make them an extra special gift!
Cheers and have a great weekend!

I just picked up this lamp at a yard sale and want to transform it for my daughter’s room. Did you spray paint the cord too? My cord is black.
This is so lovely, Summer! Changing the color did wonders for that lamp base. I am visiting the blogs of others who entered the contest today. One more day and we’ll find out! I wish you all the best of luck!
Thanks so much Lisa! I really appreciate it. Best of luck to you as well!
Looks so cool!
Thanks so much Kari!
So cute! My friend’s daughter’s name is Paris. She would love this!
Aww that’s awesome Bethany!
This is ADORABLE! I can’t believe you can get the base at Walmart too. Crossing my fingers you will the Michael’s contest!
Thanks Jessica! I was also surprised to find it at Walmart :)
Summer I love the gold on this – it just seems so perfect with the delicate look of the lamp. The shade is so cute too. I can’t believe you find things like that at your Goodwill! I hope that good luck continues and you win the trip :)
Thank you so much Lisa! It was a lucky score!
it looks awesome in gold!
Love this Summer! I have that exact lamp in my closet that I was saving to paint gold. So glad I can see how beautiful it turned out. Great job! <3 Heidi
