I had some left over fabric from the new drape (A sale by the yard find for 2$) and this tiny little pink lamp that needed some jazz in Β her life. So, I turned her plain Jane white plain hardback plastic shade into a dressy one: The matching shade gives the space a very sweet coordinated look.

I know for sure that whoever visits me here know the tutorial already so I wouldn’t bother with this one. In a nutshell, I ripped off her old hadback plastic, cut out a new one from the old, wrapped it around her frame, stapled and kept. Then I cut out the left over fabric in the same measurement, applied hot glue and stuck it over the hard back skeleton. I kept two extra inches on the width which I tuck in the frame. That is it.

Have a great week ahead. And pray for me, for my cross stitch coasters. πŸ™‚

  1. What a great job you did on the lampshade. You are making me want to recover mine. Thank you for the visit and the sweet comment. I’ll be posting some more painted goodness later in the week. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

    1. Thank you Michele! And oh oh oh… you must hear this. 90 bucks for the fabric…that should be what, 2$ i guess? Sale by yard! What a score.

It's always fabulous to read a word or two from you! Leave a comment if you have a minute!
