I got it made in the shade....




Lamp shade that is! I actually got the ole sewing machine out yesterday and made a slipcover for my lamp shade. Used the instructions in Romantic Sewing for the post part. Please pray for me that I don't succumb to Decorating ADD and end up not finishing the lamp on the other bed side table! I am VERY guilty of that at times....although I am trying really hard not to be. Follow through Cherry...follow through....... Wonderful Wednesday to All! cherry

That is too cute! Promise to post a picture of both lamps together! How is that for keeping you motivated to finish the other :)

Oh, I adore your new slipcovered lampshade! I dream of being able to slipcover things in my own home. My mother is an awesome seamstress, but I never had the patience for it as a kid. I'm thinking that I want it bad enough now and will someday actually sew the things I want!

Hi Sweet Cherry! I love that slipcover! I've been looking for a lampshade for a lamp of mine..I found it at Goodwill..I left the dirty old shade there..I need a shade..I've been looking for a old wire frame..to have a shade made out of a vintage tablecloth..didn't know it was going to be so hard! Love your slipcover!
