Remember my last DIY?
When I wrapped fabric around a canvas?
What about last week’s, when I wrapped wallpaper around a lamp shade?
OK … so, today I joined both DIY’s by wrapping the same IKEA TIDNY textile around two hand-me-down lamp shades (from my parents living room)
It was simple and easier than using wallpaper.
I wrapped the fabric around the lamp shade, used fabric glue along all the seams, then used tape to hold them in place while it dried. (I used scotch tape)
The excess fabric was supposed to be cut, I decided to leave it instead because the interior of the shades were old, dirty and ugly.
In less than an hour, I transformed two lonely old lamps into “matchy-matchy” lamps.
(these two lamps will go in my son’s play room … one day he will be able to paint them!)
