Had to change these shades to something more 'me.'  I had all the materials on hand so this project came together quickly.  The lamps were only $12 ea., including shades, which I think is a pretty great price.  I forgot to take a before shot...OK, I'll be honest and say that I didn't forget it was more that I felt the intense NEED to get it done ASAP.  These lamps had maroon silk and dangling orange-ish beads.  Now they make me happy.
See the before material?

I added the black velvet ribbon.  I'm debating whether to add another band at the top or a second on the bottom or leave it. What do you think?


  1. I love it! I think with another stripe or without its a winner. I may copy you:)

  2. Copy away and then share a picture with me!

  3. I like the shade either way... It looks great!
    Thanks for your visit and sweet comment on my lazy susan project. I got the paint pen at Michaels but I would think any craft store would carry them.

  4. I just love it!Can't believe what a little stripe did! I may copy you too!
