I’m pretty picky when it comes to most things in our house. But lampshades are one of those things I’ve never really paid a ton of attention to. I mean, besides if it’s roughly the right size and shape for the base. I didn’t notice them, that is, UNTIL then I ended up with a lampshade I hate. And now all of a sudden, lampshades seem much more important. And this shade is not even that bad. But I bought this awesome mercury glass lamp base. I brought it home from the store with a white shade and it just didn’t look right because of the warm undertones in the glass. So I sent my husband back to the store to exchange it with the off-white version of the same shade. We unwrapped it, put it on and it looked fine. Until we turned it on and it was so much more yellow than I was expecting. And also it had some weird stitching inside that you couldn’t see when the lamp is off but was super obvious when it’s on. But we unwrapped it and threw out the receipt and so I’ve been stuck with this lampshade I hate. So today I was looking for inspiration on ways I could maybe make it over. And I found some amazing projects! Enjoy!
