We found a floral patterned lampshade at Target for $14.99, then headed to Home Depot to buy a 3" steel nipple and compatible washer and nut to raise the shade. The total cost for our new lamp was $23. In this case, Bryce followed the same steps it took to take the lamp apart as he did to put it back together. The only addition was to add a longer nipple to achieve the height we wanted.
It took all of ten minutes and voila, a new lamp which ultimately ended up atop my fridge in the kitchen. I love the look of a table lamp in a kitchen and it's pretty much guaranteed no one else will have this lamp. That's the beauty of thrift shopping and a little crafty engineering. Thanks Bryce!
