I'd been looking for the perfect lampshade for our bedside lamp for quite some time and just couldn't find quite what I was looking for. In the end I opted for a plain shade. It wasn't quite what I was after but it would do. It would definitely be better than a light bulb that's for sure.
The more I looked at it, the more I had convinced myself that it just didn't cut the bill. So I decided to give it a little re-vamp. I've somehow managed to loose my before photos but I'm sure it doesn't take much to imagine how it would have looked before.
I raided my ribbon stash and found this pretty lace ribbon, cut it to size and glued a strip to both the bottom and the top of the shade using fabric glue.
Instantly sprucing up the plain shade, giving it a bit more texture and interest. So quick and simple. And the total cost ~ free. Sometimes it pays to be a bit of a hoarder.
