A few years ago, I was adding yellows and reds everywhere in my home. I still love those colors but as you've probably read before, I'm a fan of black and white.
It's a good thing that it's so easy and inexpensive to recover a lampshade! If you don't already know how, here's how to do it.
1. Lay the fabric out and roll the lampshade to make sure that it fits well. When you're covering a tapered shade like this one, your fabric will need to be cut at an angle. After you roll the shade, cut the fabric leaving about 1/4" - 1/2" to spare.
2. Hot glue where the fabric meets in the back. Make sure that you start and end where the seam is in the back so the new seam stays hidden.
3. Trim extra fabric.
4. Hot glue trim on the top and bottom, trying to stay as even as possible.
That's it, it's that easy to create a whole new look!
Screw a cup hook into the wall to hook the cord onto so that it can be hidden behind the lamp.
Here it is all black and white. Until next time ...
