So I was in need of some “crafting” therapy today. Well, actually… I needed to get a shade for a lamp I was given and didn’t want to spend $15 to buy one. That being said, I created one myself. This is the shade that came with the lamp I was given. Can you say “beyond retro???” It was U.G.L.Y.!!! I had some leftover fabric from another project, so I decided to wrap the shade with the fabric and glue ‘er together. This is how it went down…

Pretty cute if I do say so myself. 🙂
Total cost of project was : $4.00
Lamp was $2.00 at an auction and the fabric was $2.00 as well. Cheap and cute- Score!
