Plain off-white lampshades may look so dull. My table lamps in the bedroom already started to irritate me, because the fabric on them was scratched, stained, dusty and so boring. I decided to refresh them by doing this easy do-it-yourself project. For those, who are like me, live in a rented apartment, it might be a quick and easy way to bring life into the space without spending a lot of money.
For my new lampshades I have chosen blue & white fabric by Laura Ashley which I found in the discounted textile shop in Riga. In my bedroom I wanted to create a romantic atmosphere with some vintage flavor. Actually by changing fabric on the shades you can match your lamps with an existing decor or get a certain ambiance in your room.
