New Old Lampshade

I snagged this lampshade from my mom's basement, but it was in need of some updating.  The shade itself was in good shape, but it had yellowed over the years and it was just really boring. 
I found some ivory cotton fabric, cut from it about 100 three inch circles and glued them around the shade, overlapping the circles to cover the entire piece.
I finished the edges by folding half circles under the shade and gluing them down.  The shade is much more interesting now...don't you think?

  1. What a great update to an old lampshade! Fabulous idea. I may have to give it a try on some of our old light fixtures .... :)
