Lampshade Redo

I found this cute polka dot fabric at Joanns and wanted to use it in my kitchen. So, I hot glued it and some ribbon to a shade I took off a lamp in my bedroom. The shade is now on a lamp on my kitchen table on a tray (made from a picture frame) with some greenery and a snowman. I just love the whimsical polka dots! Have a great Monday everybody!

Love your lampshade and the black and white. I immediately thought it would be red/white. Love the black. You always do such a fantastic job on each of your projects.

I've been wanting to try this, but was kind of scared I'd ruin the shade. Yours looks fantastic!

I love the polka dots too.
You know, I wish there were a way to follow your blog so it would show up on my new post feed. Maybe there is and I just can't find it. Is there a way to follow your blog?

LOVE that lampshade. Did you glue it around the edges or just a little glue all over? I have a couple of lampshades that need a makeover. Great idea. Mimi
