Linen and Ruffle Lamp Shades

I have an obsession with recovering lamp shades and I seem to find them in need of recovering everywhere I look.  I sometimes wish I could pass them up because it is a time consuming project.  I covered this plain, white shade in a pale rose fabric and added a ruffle trim.  This is my favorite lamp shade so far.  I love the gentle scalloped edge on the bottom of the shade with the ruffle trim.  I was going to sell this one at Blessings Boutique, but I love it too much!  





Now I need to find the perfect lamp redo to go with this shade.  Isn't this subtle fabric beautiful with the light shining through it?  




The other lamp shade, I finished yesterday, was a $1 garage sale find and started out bright red.  While it was in perfect condition,  I am just not that into red.


I ripped and cut the red fabric off of the lamp shade frame, while still leaving the liner intact.



I covered the frame in some pretty white linen, covered up the seams and added a raw edged ruffle to the bottom.



I put the shade on a $2 thrift store lamp and moved them both out of my to do pile and into the shop!

The problem is Amanda, is that you're just so good at it ;). When you're finished those lampshades look like they came from the factory like that. They're gorgeous.

Very pretty! I've never re-covered lampshades before! I'll take another look at old shades next time I see any!
Happy New Year! Hugs, Heidi
