I saw a wonderful tutorial on Creations from my Heart recently and I left a comment for Sherry telling her that I was going to try this. She made it look so easy and her instructions were so clear. I didn't strip my shade as she did, but rather covered over everything. Sherry inspired me to take this old shade and transform it:
I chose 5 different fabrics (these were "samples" out of a fabric book), cut them to shape and used a glue gun to adhere each one:
I had some old trim which I used to cover the center seams:
I had some leftover fringe from another project which I glued on the top:
And I used a different fringe on the bottom of the shade:
It took little time, little imagination and was a great way to use up old scraps:
I put it on an old crystal lamp (that was my husband's grandmother's) in the guest room - but it might end up in my bedroom because I LOVE it so much!
