I decided to take the opportunity to make a tutorial out of it. I hope you will be inspired to try something similar for your self. I do love making over old lamps. To make them new again with some paint and fabric.
- I first took the original fabric from the lampshade. I used this as a template to cut out the new fun fabric
- I cut out the new fabric
- Next it was time to spray the lampshade and the fabric with glue and attach the fabric to the shade. To make the edges nice and neat I made slits into the fabric all around the top and bottom
- To finish up I put fabric glue all along the edges and stuck the fabric down making sure to get the fabric around the frame of the lamp
There you have it cute ‘new’ lamp and shade.
