First of all, I love this project and did not think of it on my own. My inspiration is from Angie @ http://thehappyhomebody.blogspot.com/ I wanted to recover a lampshade with some pretty paper just like Angie...and she likes red check papers, fabrics, etc! Melissa at The Inspired Room is doing posts on making your home peaceful and beautiful. This is one project I would love to do with more lamp shades because I love this look. It adds to your home, makes the room beautiful...I think it adds loveliness and it is not expensive. I used what I had.
I used scrap paper I had and ric rac...one of my favorites!
Angie has such great ideas and on her Feb. 27 post there is the Keeeeutest lampshade! Well just like any red blooded blogger...I did the happy dance and said "I have got to try this!" I got out the Decoupage syrup!!! The hot glue gun (blogger power tool) and went to work!
I had one little teensy weensy problem, when I turned on the light you could see underneath where I overlapped the paper and didn't trim it...you can barely see it here but in my living room it is 'tres sloppy' looking!
But thank you Angie for the inspiration and thanks ya'll for the visit!
