This summer, I was over at my friend Kathy's house and saw the lampshade again in her bedroom. She took a whole bunch of Battenburg lace and other lace and spot-glued them all over a lampshade.
Then, she pinned on little rose pins and other small pins. I wish I had a photograph for you. It is super cute!
I had been thinking what kind of lampshade I would like for this neat French-style lamp base I had found at Urban Barn in Escondido back in early July. I had lots of lace but not many of the same, but I am really happy with how it turned out! I think it turned out sweet!!!
To do this project, just bring out all of the lace pieces that you have collected over the years.
I had collected some of these pieces in England, some from Michael's and Joanne's Fabrics, and a few from a trip to Idaho a few years ago. It was nice to bring them out of the linen closet! I even used some little crocheted roses I had picked up probably ten or fifteen years ago. They give this shade some extra dimension which I really like! :)
Happy Belated Labor Day to you all!
