Shady Lady

I saw a lampshade like this last year at the Farm Chicks sale in Spokane and thought it looked pretty cool. I also figured I could make one so I went on the hunt for just the right shade and found this beauty at a yard sale, of course.

I removed the fabric that was on the shade then cut strips of fabric from different materials, tied them to the shade form and wa la! She's beautiful!

Now that I know how easy it is I won't wait so long to make the next one. I have a shade all ready for it in my bedroom just waiting for me to get to work.

Well I don't know where I have been or what I have been doing that has kept me away from posting for so long. But maybe this will get me back on your good side. Look at these fun ideas for pallets. Yep, those bothersom wooden things that people try to give away. Now you know what to do with them! You can bet I already have my eye on a couple!
