I’m back and if you’re reading this, thanks for coming back to my blog! I needed a little craft fix this afternoon. It’s a way for me to relax after a crazy day at work. I’ve been thinking for a while about giving my 2 living room lamps a little update. I’m still trying to convince my hubby that if I paint the lamp bases it will be okay. In the interim, I thought I would add a bit too the lamp shades. This quick project took me 10 minutes. I know this because I did it while I was searing some pork chops for dinner.
I found some ribbon in my stash. This full basket is a result of too many trips to Michaels and the big bin of ribbon that’s always priced for $1.00 each. It sucks me in every time.
I simply took the ribbon and taped it to the inside of the seam and wrapped it around the entire shade. I used scotch tape so I can remove it anytime. Here’s the before and after. It’s subtle, but just enough effective. I like it.
I’ve only used ribbon on a lampshade once before and that was with my doodle lamp. Have you ever used ribbon to update a shade?
