Up-cycled, Re- purposed scarf to create a unique functional lampshade using the guidelines for the Junior cycle Home Economics textile option
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 décor. The lampshades that I revamped had a great shape and modern base it was my pleasure to give them some colour and some character.
It is a difficult decision selecting the right size shade for your home or as a gift especially with such a wide variety of shades available.
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.
