Some do-it-yourself projects can look just like that – like you painted and glued and assembled with your own hands in your own basement. This my dearies, is not one of them. Have you ever found the most adorable lamp, but the shade is a little tattered and worn? Look no further, here is a great DIY to daintify even the most damaged of lamps.
1. Find a lamp with a base that you like. If the shade is beat up, even better!
2. Remove all fabric or fiberglass so that all that is left on the shade is the skeleton.
3. Measure the width and height of the lamp shade. Lay the doilies out to fit these dimensions. Then stitch these doilies together with embroidery floss.
4. Once you have your desired pattern, attach the doily shade to the lamp by stitching it to the frame all the way around.
Voila – a pretty, girly lamp for your favorite reading nook:)
