This article on about.com tells you how to cover a lamp shade…which is a project I will be tackling soon. I found this big old lamp shade in the garbage. It’s been sitting in the back seat of my 94 dodge spirit getting thrown around for 2 weeks by my back seat passengers. I am waiting to save some money to buy some of the beautiful fabric from warm biscuit to cover my shade. Then I need to find a good base for the lamp. Your actually supposed to find the base first, but I like this lamp shade. So I’ll find one…time to go thrift shopping 🙂
