Lampshade before and after


Remember the lampshade which I showed in one of my first posts? Here is the before and after result of my redesign efforts. Sorry about the bad before shot, could not find a better photo. It was an ordinary white lampshade, once again from Ikea and I added the checked pattern and fabric to modernize it. The fabric comes from a menswear shirt from Dressmann. Lucky me that saw the shirt on a table when I passed by the store doors.


I first attempted to glue the fabric onto the lampshade but the glue left stains and therefore I had to sew or stitch it onto the lampshade. A very time-consuming task as it was difficult to get the needle through the material. I was happy with the final result though.

The little glass dome contains two little furry sheep which come from Spegels.

If you have any feedback, comments or special wishes for what I should write about please let me know. I would love to know what I do well and what I can improve.
