I found the cutest pair of lamps at Goodwill, they were two different sizes, marble base and pink glass. I purchased them for a super cheap price, 4 dollars a pair! The minute I saw them, I knew what I wanted to do with them, a rag shabby country lampshade.
I have never made a rag shade, so I documented with pictures how I made them.
- rag sheet yarn or fabric strips
- ruler or yardstick
I removed the fabric from the lampshade, exposing the lamp frame. Make sure your lampshade has a top and bottom ring, attached by sides. I cut a strip of fabric and tied it on the top frame and on the bottom frame and measured the strip for a template. I chose 4 different fabric colors and cut strips.
That’s it ! The fabric is bright and happy and the rag edges are relaxed and carefree, giving it a very shabby country feel. I can’t wait to get started on the second shade, the only problem is, where should I put them, lol….
