Want to spruce up a room without spending big bucks?!
Then this post is for you!
I needed a new lamp for my dinning room and wanted to use one that I already had.
There was one problem… the red shade that was on this lamp did NOT work in my dinning room….
So, I did this:
I grabbed some fabric that was left over from recovering the dinning room chairs (make sure your fabric is at least 2 inches wider than the shade and will wrap all the way around with a little but of fabric overlapping each other), the lampshade and some spray adhesive then made a mad dash for the door…
I attacked the shade with the spray adhesive…
Then “rolled” the shade across the fabric like this:
And once the entire outside of the shade is covered, You should have at least an inch of fabric left over on both ends. Take the fabric, spray it with more adhesive spray and adhere it to the inside of the shade, making sure to “work out” any wrinkles as best as you can!
Now you have an entirely new lamp for your house!
Not too shabby for a 10 minute project!
