Ruffles

Home improvement, part deux. 

This was a project from last month. This extremely tacky looking cheap lamp is what we started with. 


And with some coral colored fabric scraps hot glued in a ruffled arrangement all the way up the lampshade, plus a coat of white paint later on, you have a much more attractive looking table lamp! :) 

I don't have the finished product photo, unfortunately, but I'm sure you can imagine the difference. Here are some other cool lampshade ideas I found on Pinterest:


Maps, buttons, spray painting with lace as a stencil, paint sample cards, flowers, rope...you could do pretty much anything, it looks like. Oh the power of glue and mod podge....
