Adding Some Detail - Lamp Update

You may remember both the nightstand redo and the lamp redo for the boys' room well, now that we have an accent color there is an added detail to the lamp.

Using two different thicknesses of bias tape and some hot glue

I turned all the perfectly fine, all white lamp and shade into something just a bit nicer. 

And it looks great against the blue wall and coordinates perfectly with the bedding. 

It is always amazing to me how a little detail like some bias tape on a lampshade can make such a difference.  I am trying to remember this fact when I get overwhelmed with a room redo or a piece of furniture makeover.  Sometimes it is the little things that can make the biggest impact. 

What little detail(s) have you added to a plain or solid colored item that made a big impact?
