~ Lampshades Makeover ~

I am so pleased with
my latest makeover.......

I had a couple of old lamps up in the Guest House....

so I tugged off the beaded trim...


and traced the shape of the shade
on to some calico.

The fabric I cut looked like this.

So I got out my trusty stamps.....

and got busy!

I kept stamping until
my fabric was covered to my liking....

I used a Staz On Black,
knowing I won't have to wash it anyway.
(Make sure you get the special
stamp cleaner if you buy some
~ true to its' name it stays on every surface!)

Next I modge podged (glued)
my fabric onto my shades.

I then used a strong clear glue to
attach a black & white trim.

Neat huh?
And practically free!
All I bought was the trim!
(The rest came from my stash!)
