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!
