Shabby Chic Lamp Makeover
January 26, 2012 By 5 Comments
I've been updating some old lamps around my house. I've looked for a long time at various lampshade ideas but was never really wild about any of them. I saw something on Pinterest and it inspired this little Shabby Chic baby: Materials: Old lampshade (I bought this baby at Savers for like a buck.) Strips of fabric in your colors of choice. Directions: To start, strip the shade down to the wire. The take your strips and tie one end on. Then just start wrapping the strips around the wires, like shown. When your strip is running out, tie on another one. It's that easy! And to mix in colors, just tie in the different color. And tie it to finish. I trimmed up the ties except for on the colors because I liked the bow. My Hub said it looked like a hat. If I were to do this again, I would either make knots at each post or at one designated post that would be facing the wall. But that's me.
