A no sew lamp shade re-do

Well I am crazy crazy for bold patterned fabric right now.
Andddd I am having fun incorporating it in all different areas in my house!


including my old lamps.
lets talk lamps.
I hate my old lamps--this guy was from ikea....from about a million years ago...
and it needed the shade face lift.
I wish I had a million dollars because I LOVE new lamps and would love to by about 150 of them.
I can honestly say that yes---15 lamps is about what I could realistically use for around my house....
buttt since I can't buy all new this moment...
I use my fabric anddddd make my old lamps a bit more desirable.


All I used was:
-fabric, a glue gun and spray adhesive.


I had fun using spray adhesive for the first time---wow did that make covering the shade simple!
I just sprayed and wrapped the fabric around.
Then I trimmed the excess fabric.


Next I folded the seam and glue-gunned it nice and tight.


Then I trimmed and wrapped the edges and glued down.


so so simple.
nice and inexpensive.
anddd I like the lamp a lot more than I did.


kind of a fun fall fabric right?!

I am sharing my lamp makeover at a few of these wonderful link-y parties!
I hope you are all getting excited to link up your wonderful ideas starting tomorrow (Wed.) night!!! 
:o)

Aw Jaime, this is adorable! Seriously, I need you to decorate my house. I find myself loving every single thing you do--is that creepy. :) No, but really, this is super cute & just shows that you can transform anything to look like new!

Ohhh, I melt for awesome fabric! I love what you did with that IKEA lampshade. My head is spinning with the possibilities. I think my lampshades are shaking with fear. Little do they know how good they could look. As I pass these fearful lampshades I whisper, soon your beauty will be restored. Thanks for the idea and it's just too amazing!

I love this fabric!! The lamp looks gorgeous. There are so many wonderful lighting options. I could spend a fortune transforming all of our lighting.
