9 DIY Lampshade Ideas That Will Personalize Your Bedside Table (PHOTOS)

It's the truth: We all need a bedside table lamp. They allow us to read a book late at night and help us find our way to the bathroom in the dark. But more often than not, our lighting comes standard with the same bland, lifeless white shades that just don't add anything to our otherwise well-decorated spaces.

But, to give these accessories a different look, why not add your own touch? Below are nine easy and affordable DIY ideas that'll have these fixtures matching your room's personality in no time.
