Lampshade With Hand Stitched Detail & Whimsical Flowers

Last Updated on January 8, 2016 by Kristi Linauer

I always enjoy seeing old, outdated lamps and lampshades transformed into something that is pretty and modern.  This great lampshade makeover from A Smith Of All Trades has a wonderful hand stitched detail that gives it a casual look, and fabric flowers that add a bit of whimsy.

    May just be the little bit of inspiration I need to kick up my newly refabbed shade. Thanks Kristi & Smith of All Trades!

    I love this. The only thing you have to be careful with when adding fabric to lamps, is that they don’t burn easily. I once re-did a lamp with fabric. I guess I used the wrong kind (and maybe a high wattage bulb) and it didn’t end pretty. 🙂

    This is really, really cute. Thank you for finding this and sharing it. I am always looking for new ways to dress up lampshades. This is new!
