Here's one thing I have been up to!!!
I found an old lamp shade at a flea market and the fabric was so fragile and ripped that it was very simple to rip off. What I was left with was just the metal frame of the shade. I needed to re-vamp my nightstand lamp, so with a little book paper and some embellishments--- we have a new shade.
Granted --this shade is much more decorative that functional- but the bedroom lamp doesn't get used very much --just about an hour or so before bed-- so the paper shade is not in any danger of over heating. I love all the dimension and fun things tied ON!!
The colors are perfect for our bedroom and Of course, Birds are my Thing!!!
