Lamp Make-Over

I picked up this very large heavy lamp at the thrift store for $14. It had very charming cherubs all the way around that were in an unfortunate gold color with a boring pleated shade. Here is how I gave it a make-over...



Before...

 Not the best pic - but I had ripped off all the pleated stuff from the shade. I then tore an old white bed-skirt into long strips and began using the hot glue gun to attach the strips loosely around the shade, overlapping each tier to create a ruffled effect...

I took a can of white spray paint to the base and made some fabric flowers out of the leftover strips...



Here's a preview of another project I'm working on...
I'm turning this into a light fixture... Stay tuned...
