I have had these lamps for about Mmmmmm 17yrs! I am really sick of the early 90's look of the fabric. So the first step was taking the cover off.
After the pleated stuff was off, then I picked the fabric. I chose some Amy Butler fabric.
around the lamp shade and took my fabric and kind of eyed it (like I said, I don't have a lot of patience and I am not a perfectionist).
I liked the style of the old lamp shade cover, so I just copied it.
Here is what it looks like after I pulled the gathers on the top. It takes a while, and I am not a pro at gathers, so it took me like an hour....I didn't want to break my threads and have to start over!
Here's what it looks like after you sew the pucker.
There is the finished rosette glued on. Cute, right? I didn't include how to make a rosette, but there is a fabulous tutorial HERE.
There is my new lovely lamp shade cover! I have more pictures to show you of my lamps new color! See the black lamp? It's not black anymore:)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
