The happy lampshade:)

This old lampshade was boring and tired, 
not at all suitable for my creative space!





So........
*I spray painted 2 coats of happy spring green, inside and out. 
*Then I rummaged around in my trim junk drawer and found this old striped tie belt from a long forgotten dress. 
*It was perfect!
*The trim was hot glued around the lampshade pushing it down into the crevices to 
highlight the fun shape.
*I then added 2 rows of lime green rope trim leftover from another decorating project of long ago.

p.s.
A design tip...NEVER get rid of any trim or ribbon no matter how old or seemingly out of style!
