For a long time I've wanted to share my new lampshades I made with you, but for one reason or another, I just haven't done it.
About three years ago, I did a lampshade makeover, Before & After: Lamp & Lamp Shade, and it was really very easy to do. I loved the brown fabric I used before on them, but since changing the paint color, the curtains and the furniture in the living room, the color of the shades just seemed a little off. They were just too dark for lighter, brighter room. So I decided to redo them again.

Anyway... Here's what they look like now!
|Ta-da! Brand new look!|
I thought it might be fun to show you the progression of how much these lamps have changed.
|Oh how they've changed!|
I hated these lamps when I first moved into Jim's house. They were chunky and ugly, and at the time, they had mismatched shades on them. When I found matching blue drum shades at Goodwill for $3 each, which would go with Jim's ugly blue recliner, I snatched them up, because lampshades are soooo expensive!
There are instructions all over the internet for covering lampshades, so I'm not going to go into the process. I just wanted to share the new look with you.
Have you ever done anything like this? I'd love to see the results!
