Speaking of Junky Finds! Fabric -Ribbon Lampshades?

Hello all....

This weekend was a blur.... trying to get ready for the family Thanksgiving and putting the finishing touches on my junky finds.

I had bought this not so attractive lamp table, couple coats of black paint does wonders! I had this old vintage shade (see in photo). With the help of a friend who taught me the tricks of knot tying and cutting 2 inch strips.. a fabric-ribbon lampshade was in the making.

These fabric-ribbon lamp shades sell here locally in a antique store in my hometown for about $100! Use your imagination and fine tune to accommodate your color scheme! Oh yeah.. and of course had to add a few strands of beads!

Hope your weekend was kicking fun!!
