Step 1

Remove and discard the old shade and finial, if there is one.

Step 2

Cut a piece of wallpaper large enough to wrap around the lamp, with the ends overlapping slightly at the seam. Line the edges of the lamp with wide double-sided tape. Adhere the wallpaper to one side of the lamp, then wrap it tightly around one side at a time. Add another piece of double-sided tape at the seam to secure.

Step 3

Add a new shade and finial.
