Customize Your Lampshade

It's back to designing my daughter's bedroom with a little project to dress up a very boring and very black lampshade.  I loved the pretty acrylic base it came with and finding a lamp on sale for $38 was too good of a bargain to pass up.  I knew replacing the shade was going to cost more than the entire lamp so I decided to dress it up instead.


For just over $10, I found this textured and fluffy flower fabric

Once it was cut to size and then glued into place, here's that boring black shade now

So for less than $50, I have this totally custom lamp for her bedside table
I added the cute starfish and once accessorized, her bedside table will be complete!
