Lampshape Makeover

This lamp has sentimental value to my hubby (his dad made it in high school in his shop class) but as you can see the lamp shade is not doing so hot anymore. The frame is perfectly fine though, so why toss it? Time for a makeover!

So i grabbed:
mod podge
the old books i found at the toss bin
foam brush

remove the accordion paper stuff on top

leaving the frame and shell

gather pages...

collage glue the pages to the shell
let dry and then do a final coat of glue.
Marvel and receive compliments.

  1. What a great idea! I did not know that you could remove the pleated part of the shade much less modge podge things to it.

  2. Nice Redo! I think the design better fits the lamp this way! Thank you for linking to Handy Man, Crafty Woman Wicked Awesome Wednesday!

  3. That is a pretty cool idea. It looks great!
