Cover a Lampshade with Fabric and Ribbon

Recovering a lamp shade is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make a dramatic difference in a room, whether it's a lamp on a nightstand, on an end table, hanging from the ceiling, in the kitchen, or in my case.... on a desk in my son's bedroom.

I made a lamp shade go from this...

Lamp Before

to this, in less than an hour.

Lamp After

You can do it too!!!  Janell at Isabella & Max Rooms has posted precise steps, including detailed pictures, to show how recovering a lamp shade with fabric and trim can be so easy.   Her tutorial is so great, I figured I'll show you my lamp shade pictures and then link to her site for the tutorial... it's amazing!!!

Here's a glimpse into my project....

  1. Your lamp is too cool, I've been wanting to find a few minutes to do this project again myself! You are right, such an easy update that adds a lot to a room and you can create exactly the lampshade you want. It's often hard to find interesting lampshades on the market. Thanks also for the shout out!

  3. Thanks!!! Those extra large polka dots on the shade seemed like a great way to impact the room... the fabric is Dandie Cotton in Chocolate/Natural from Buy Fabrics.
