Lamp Shade DIY::

      It's  time to work on that vintage regency lamp. A  purchase that was made weeks ago thrifting. You know.. I brought it home with the dome? At the time, I was more excited about the dome. Now, I need a shade for this beauty of a lamp. Here's a sneak peek of this no sew project. My inspiration came a calling from Pinterest. I like to give credit where credit is do. I'm not sure if I'm happy with the beginnings. Help! What do you think? Should I continue? Try different patterns of lace? I'm stuck. So, for now I'll sit and stare at it. Ha, Ha. Till, I hear what the consensus is. Thanks guys ;)
                           Make it a great Sunday Folks!

I'm liking the lace. I like that you can see the metal and paper around the top too. I vote to keep going.

I have done several of these lampshades...each one different...some with vintage seam binding mixed in with lace and charms tied on. The possibilities are endless! Love it!! :)

I almost like it just like it is! Kind of the Victorian Industrial look!

Do it...it's wonderful! And when you tire of it, you can easily change it to suit your mood, season or decor! The best part, you've provided DIY inspiration to other womenfolk! ;)

The lamp shade looks almost exactly like one I started and never finished! I definitely think you need to finish it and then post another pic so I know how mine will turn out!
