Lampshade Redo - A Nap Time Project by Megan

Last week I shared a tutorial for how to recover a lampshade using fabric. We had finally moved our Gray Barn Find Dresser that we had done a few weeks back into a bedroom.  I had a matching lamp base from the project before that had a plain white shade in the room.  I went to JoAnn fabrics and purchased a 1/2 yard of outdoor fabric for $5.00.  



I was able to recover the lampshade in approximately thirty minutes using my tutorial.  I was pretty happy with the way it turned out and I think it looks nice on the dresser.  I also ordered a new graphic print from Doodle Graphics shop on Etsy.  It says "A Bushel and a Peck and a Hug Around the Neck".  I love this song and my daughter, Wynn, now requests that we sing it all the time.

Not a bad lamp transformation for $5.00 worth of fabric.  We are excited with how it turned out.
