Before and After

I have been trying to do some spring cleaning and freshening things up for the new season.  All of a sudden I noticed an old lamp sitting in the corner of my master bedroom, that we never use and was appalled that the shade looked really bad!  Had anyone else seen it I would have been embarrassed, okay?

So, I immediately went into action!  Here is the before; faded and ugly!
and here is the after;

and here it is back on the lamp in the corner of my bedroom!  I may actually turn it on now!

All I did was take a piece of Ultra Suede material that I had in my sewing basket and I used fabric glue and covered the shade.  I hot glued the trim on the top and bottom, so there was absolutely no sewing involved!  Material, trim, scissors and glue.  That was it!  So easy and I love the fact that I recycled something instead of running out to buy a new one!  Give it a try, you will not be sorry.  I'm feeling pretty good about myself right now!  It makes me so happy!

Until we meet again...

  1. Wow that is a transformation. I would have thrown it away but you made it totally brand new. I want to cover a shade in fabric so I am studying up on it right now.
