Lampshade


Finally after living in this house for more than a year. We no longer lie in bed staring at a bare bulb.
I found this gorgeous silk at Laura Ashley & made the shade after a customer brought it to me to make a Roman blind, a cushion & to cover a picture frame with it (good idea for later on...maybe a in few more years we'll get some pictures on the walls).

lovely! How does one cover a lampshade with material? Do you have to worry about fire hazard?

Just checked it Thomsey tommmmmmm. Can't wait til you are here..

Kelly D, the lampshade was one I found at a charity shop (in Australia called an Op shop, what are tey called in the States?) It's fairly wide & has a wire thingy whatsit that sticks out & keeps the fabric miles away from the light bulb. Thus no fires. (hopefully)
Sorry it's taken so long for me to reply to your comment, we've been away for a few days.....to be blogged soon......
