You need a floor lamp with a round lampshade wire mesh 2 centimeters longer and wider than the lampshade. A retro light bulb a spray can of matte black paint, binding wire wire cutters, pliers, a box cutter and masking tape. Let's go first cut off several pieces from the binding wire, then dismantle the lampshade to measure the circumference of the lampshade wind, the wire mesh around it don't forget to leave room for the overlaps now tied a lettuce together with binding wire using two wire cutters cut away the top and bottom rolls of the lettuce next take the fabric off the old lampshade with a craft knife, you should end up with two metal rings left set them aside. If you need them later, for your new lampshade make sure to remove the old glue from the metal rings, orange oil will help you.
There now connect the Rings to the wire mesh use a pair of pliers to bend the ends of wire around the rings. Once it's fixed repeat the process for the side start by cutting the first rows open, then remove the green binding. Finally bend the wire ends to fix the body in place. Now all that's left is to color. You can spray your lamp in the color of your choice.
I chose matte black for this step. I strongly advise you to work in a well-ventilated place or even better outdoors. The vapors are really unpleasant. Let the paint dry for a day. Then you can reassemble the parts and voila a stylish new lamp with a wire mesh lampshade I'd recommend to use mesh with thin wires.
