I've been busy with more lamp shades. Last week at our couples bible study one of my friends asked if I could work some magic on two of her "Plain Jane" lampshades. She had some left over fabric from the window treatments that I made for her cottage. She handed me the left over fabric and said, "do whatever you want, I trust you". I don't know if I like when someone says that to me. I'm always worried that it won't be what they had envisioned.
Is this a "Plain Jane" shade or what?
I started with the fabric. I just love this check fabric.
Here's a tip...
Use more than one style of trim.
It adds variety and a custom look.
I went to Hobby Lobby and selected three different styles of trim.
It's amazing how the trim really addes to the look.
Can you see how I used the trim
and layered it on top of each other?
I used the scallop trim around the top and bottom and then added the mingled colored braid on top ot the trim.
Later this week I'll share with you the other lampshade. I'm going to try and and make my own pleated ruffle to added to the bottom of the shade. Stop back, and I'll share it with you how I made it. Linking up to the following creative sites.
