So when I found this nice quality linen shade at (you guessed it) the thrift store, I couldn't pass it up for .50 cents. I put it on the little black lamp, but it just seemed a little too "boxy" with the curves of the base.
I thought I'd try giving it a softer look by adding some feminine details. I had some of this trim left from my daughter's wedding.
And some handmade fabric flowers left over from another project. (I'll show you how to make these sometime!)
I attached the trim to the bottom of the shade using the hot glue gun. I started at the back of the shade near the seem in the linen on the corner.
Continuing around, and finally tucked the end of the trim under itself for a neat finish.
Then I simply hot glued the fabric flowers to the front of the shade.
50 cents spent and a few minutes to glue. I'm happy : )
Sometimes, it's just the little things, ya know?
