Giving An Old Lampshade New Life

Hello there!
Welcome to INSPIRE.

So, technically spring is still days away, but here in the Ohio valley, we have been teased a bit
of that upcoming bliss with warmer 
than average temperatures for this time of year.

So naturally, that has had me in a "re-habbing" mood, especially with my home decor.
For it is the time of year, to shake the winter blahs, and bring new life, into my decor.

My latest obsession in decor has been
Farmhouse/Shabby/French Flea Market designs.
I am also a fan of working with what I have, and just making subtle changes.

A few months ago while perusing a clearance section in the fabric dept. at my local Hobby Lobby, I found a French Script shower curtain, for like $3.

Of course I snatched it up.

The first projects I completed, was recovering my unsightly white linen drum lampshades on my living room lamps.




Having leftover material, I decided to do the same with the old lampshade for this small lamp.


So, I measured, cut, ironed & glued the fabric to the existing lampshade, and added some gorgeous fringe in a coordinating color.

This was a simple & easy project, with lots of decorative punch when finished.

And so lovely in our entryway hallway.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Visit again soon, and see what other creative endeavors are a foot!

Until next time.......Be Crafty!
