Thrifting Thursday - Refurbished Lamp Shade

 

This is another one of those times where I wondered “what if”.

What if I tore a ratty little lampshade apart and tried to make it not so ratty?

I scoured my studio and this is what I came up with…

I spray painted the wire with white Krylon spray paint and let dry.

I wrapped the perals round and round gluing here and there to secure them in place.

For a little extra frill, I glued silk flowers around the top and bottom.
