Lampshade Before and After

I had this lamp in my room from Ikea that I liked but I wanted to do something different to it.

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.
Pin It!
