DIY Fabric Lampshade Makeover
Transform an old or plain lampshade into a statement piece with this tutorial. We'll show you how to cover a lampshade frame with fabric strips in six simple steps.
Update a plain lampshade into a custom accessory for any room. By simply using fabric and glue, you can quickly transform a lackluster lampshade into a pretty home accent—all in less than one hour.
The trick is to take some time picking out your fabric. You don't need to visit any specialty lampshade fabric suppliers, but you do need to think about the overall effect of a given fabric. A chevron style, for example, creates a fun, preppy accent piece, while a bright floral print exudes a casual elegance. Consider the look you're hoping to achieve as well as the style of your existing space when making the choice for your DIY lampshade.
