A few days ago while shopping at my local Goodwill store, I came across this set of lampshades, and knew I had to get them and give them a shabby and oh-so chic makeover. The shapes of these are my favorite to work with!
This first one you see above, I used a pretty pink floral print on crisp white, and trimmed it out with pink gimp and vintage chenille type fringe. Then I added this large pink rose to give it a wonderful shabby and oh-so chic look. I placed this shade on this lamp base temporarily to take a photo of it, but I need to find the right base for it, and have it displayed in my Dining room.
For the second shade, I chose a pretty Durham print with tossed pink roses on a creamy background; used the same pink gimp as the first one, and trimmed it with this fun feathery style fringe trim, and finished it with a Vintage medium rose colored Millinery rose. This one will stay on the lamp it is displayed on, and is in my living room.
I have a couple more shades I plan to refurbish sometime soon, and when I get a chance to work on them I will post about those for you to see :) Perhaps those might end up in my Ebay store?
