White Linen Ruffle Lamp Shades

I needed an update for my bedroom lampshades that I purchased a few years ago from Restoration Hardware. They were brown and boring and I wanted a change. I paired the shades with beautiful, white linen from a thrift store.

First, I had to cut the brown fabric off the metal frame (no easy task) leaving the liner intact. I cut out four pieces of linen from a pattern that I made by tracing one side of the lamp shade. Then, I glued the linen to the metal frame and covered the seams with the same fabric using a hot melt glue gun. For the finishing touch, I sewed and attached a ruffle to the bottom edge.

Soft and pretty with the lights on!

They look amazing! I've covered a few lamps in my day, however not with the detail you've done. This shape is not easy to work with. I've usually done the wider cone shape which you can simply spray or hot glue the fabric to. Very talented, and your blog is great. tami from the high street cottage
