A Little Something

 A while back I made this lampshade to go with something that I'm working on. I like how it turned out, but I thought that I needed to make something else. Something with a little more oommph to it. So....this just got set aside in my craft room where I promptly forgot about it. Well I rediscovered it again this morning & decided that even though I didn't use it as I originally planned, I still like it. Now granted, it doesn't fit this lamp very well but I wanted to let you guys see it, so I plopped it on & decided to take a few pictures. It's a really simple project.....just a cheap white lampshade that I covered with some vintage pattern paper using a glue gun (my best friend). I topped it off with some ribbon & there you have it. I think it's charming but I don't think my hubby likes it........he thinks it's "weird".....whatever ;)

Oh & yeah, that's my Christmas tree in the background,along with all of my storage boxes. Can you tell what I'm supposed to be doing now?

  2. I like it too! Maybe, it's a bit too feminine for him. ~ Maureen

  3. I like it and think it would look great with a white lamp, very shabby chic. I agree it's probably too feminine for your husband.

  4. Is that pattern paper? How COOL! Glad you like my sense of humor...I can't hardly listen to those - I still almost die every time... sort of like "Save a pretzel for the gas jets."
