A Shabby Look for and Old Lampshade Form
Thank goodness it's Thursday. A day closer to Friday and than the weekend starts and all the remakes begin......What fun....Found an old lampshade with the old wire in it and I began to tear all the old covering off that was discolored and torn. The metal was in very good shape so I decided to paint the metal a pink color which I thought would lend itself to a Shabby look. Check out the before picture. Than I decided to wrap it with a shimmery cream netting and some cream ribbon. I cut the netting into different lengths along with the ribbon and just knotted it where it ended and started. I think it gave a really shabby look that lends itself nicely to an old vintage lamp that my husband rewired for me. What do you think? I think it is a fun look that is shabby and green at the same time...Talk about recycling.......Here is the after picture.......
