But the lampshade isn't the kind that I can strip down the wire and put fabric or anything on. So, I stripped off the pleated fabric on top.
And underneath there was a plastic lining. I thought 'I can work with this.'
I took off the rest of the fabric that was lining the top and the bottom of the shade and replaced it with white bias tape. Then I grabbed a permanent marker and wrote on the shade.
I used the lyrics to "I'm Alive" by Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews. I love that song and think it's perfect to remind myself of everyday.
