I've been busting at the seams to share the news with you, but I had to wait until it was official. My first episode of "Fancy That" is now running on our local cable TV station. It's been in the works for awhile, but after some delays it's now on the air. I didn't even know that it aired, until I got a phone call from a friend asking for my autograph. I asked "for what"? She told me that while she was preparing dinner with her husband, my face popped up on the TV! What a HOOT. Each monthI will be filming a new episode. It's quite a production. The first episode took about 4 hours to film. Partly because I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. This episode of "Fancy That" is about taking an ordinary lampshade and making it into something extra-ordinary.
Grab a cup a coffee and watch how easy it is to create a one of a kind lampshade...

Well after watching , I hope you will take one of your lampshades and give it a whole new style.
Here's some photos of the finished lampshade.
I just love the fabric patterns as the light shines through the shade. After I finished the lampshade and took some photos, I had wished that I had done the lampshade for myself. The colors are perfect for my room. I think I have enough fabric to do one for me...
I'll put that on my list of projects to do!
The center fabric I picked up at Hobby Lobby. It was the perfect color for my client's bedroom. I had recently made the window treatments and bedding for her master bedroom. I just happened to mention that the lampshade could use a bit of embellishing. Then I got an idea...Why not recover her lampshade for my fist show?
Great idea.... "Fancy That" !
Here's the other patterned fabric. It is a wonderful gold tone on tone.
The gimp trim and the scalloped trim were found at Jo Ann Fabrics. A bargain at 50% off. I had to special order the beaded trim from one of my vendors.
I think every lamp in my house has a style of beaded trim. I love the way it looks when the lights hit it. It just adds a bit of bling and glamor.
I hope you enjoyed the video and learned a few tips. Don't be nervous to try and recover one of your lampshades. It's easy to do and once your done, you'll be hooked!
