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!
