Let the light shine.

After many, many years putting up with the same dusty old dull lampshade it was time for a change. I stripped off the silky purple fabric from the frame and chose a piece of white gauzy fabric leftover from trimming Helens curtains:


Still dull and boring so I added a few lengths of ribbon and ricrac from the scraps box and this is what we have now:


Brighter, cleaner and more in keeping with the newly refurbished on a shoestring room. And I managed not to bleed on it after several stabbings of my finger whilst handsewing the trim!

I must absolutely do this too - My boy really needs a light shade that is more in keeping with his room - thanks so much for the inspiration.
