My friend Jen from over at http://creating-with-the-js.blogspot.com/ gave me a plain white lamp shade to work my magic on. This is what it looked like before.
I added some black trim to the top and bottom with hot glue and I made a fabric flower from scraps of some leftover fabric. I added an antique button to the center of the flower and glued the flower to the lamp shade with hot glue.
Here is the finished product.
Here is the shade sitting on top of a large candle holder just so you can see how it looks. I like how it looks next to my pottery barn knock off sheet music candle. (I'll post about the candle later)
Welcome to my little corner of blogland coming to you from Western Pennsylvania also known as Steeler Country. My name is Geri, I am the youngest of 6 and I refer to myself as Sister Number 5. I love being a wife, mother and grandmother to one beautiful little girl. My true passion in life is creating new ways to use old things. I will repurpose everything and anything I can find. I love yard sales, thrift stores, consignment stores and boating. Relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading my blog. Hopefully I can inspire you to remake something in your house. Thanks for stopping by.
