gussying up the shades


I've been working like crazy over here to prepare for the Christmas Home tour.  I keep seeing projects around my house that are only half done, and having a couple hundred strangers walk through my home is motivation to finish them up!  One thing on the to do list was to replace a lamp shade that the kids knocked over and broke.  I added white ruffle trim from Walmart to the bottom...


I just hot glue it along the edge of the shade.  My glue guns have been through wars.  Can you tell?!  They always have things stuck to them like pink fabric.  :)


It's amazing how a little trim can transform, isn't it?
By the way, did you notice the lantern in the background of the first photo?  It was this one!  I took out the glass, because I didn't like the frosted squares on it.  Then I spray painted it white.  It was looking pretty shabby (not in a good way) after being left outside in the elements.
