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.

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.
