There’s so many ways to update with rope; you’ll definitely be able to get some great ideas below! I decided to update a old lamp for my daughters room. The entire project took under a hour and the outcome is great.

Here’s how to update a lamp with rope:
To get started you simply glue the rope down at the top of the lamp. Then start wrapping the rope around. I would glue the rope on the front & back then wrap 1 time without. Keep going till you hit the bottom of the lamp.
This was a large lamp and I used exactly 10 feet of rope. Now to add some interest! I decided to spray paint half of the rope in a Mint/Aqua color. If you spray paint the rope you need to make sure the tape is really secure to get a clean line.
