My name is Karen & my business is called Fabricate. I make handmade gifts and home decors. I create unique handmade fabric lampshades these are one of my best seller products, whether it is to style your own home or give a Unique gift. I use high quality fabrics to create these unique lampshades, I use many varieties of fabrics on my lampshades. All my lampshades are handcrafted & hand rolled and made with a special PVC lining. Each shade is handmade with love.
Recently I was asked to revamp some old lampshades for Collins Bar & Restaurant in Dooradoyle in Limerick. I just loved to see the transformation and the new lease of life that is given to these old lampshades. In total, 7 lampshades were transformed from an old, plain beer stained cream fabric to a funky modern contemporary patterned fabric that just made the shades standout.
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 of a very busy bar. 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.
If you have some old tired lampshades that need some TLC and you would like them recovered or repaired don’t hesitate to pop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m happy to help you choose new fabrics and provide a quote for some new handcrafted fabric lampshades that will illuminate your home.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
