Revamped Lampshades

As you will see from the before and after pictures these revamped, these upcycled lampshades have been giving a new lease of live & added a pop of colour to its surroundings. Some lampshades are just not ready for the trash heap, its great to recycle and reuse the base and replace the PVC with a carefully chosen fabric to suit and coordinate with your surroundings and d├ęcor. The lampshades that I revamped had a great shape and modern base it was my pleasure to give them some colour and some character.

Labour of Love Lampshade Restoration

I go through the process involved with restoring a beautiful old lampshade, complete with pictures. The lampshade has great sentimental value to the customer and it was treated with lots of TLC throughout the process.
