Day 44: 365 Daily Project - A Lampshade

Tangles: Artoo, Boo*Kee, Tipple, Printemps, Fringe

I just happened to have a stained lampshade that I have been wanting to tangle for years (yup, years).  

Before - Ewwww!!!

Can you even believe I lived with this gross lamp shade for so long.  Well the suggestion for today freed me from this eyesore and I now have a lovely new lampshade.  

The cool thing about it is that I used a white gelly roll pen for the background that you don't really see till you turn the light on.  Pretty cool, huh?

All lit up!

  1. I love that something that might have been thrown away now looks new ... and like you'd planned the "background color." It's really very pretty ... and the white jelly roll pen work finishes it nicely.

  8. Love your piece and I'm inspired to try to repurpose all those items I've tucked away to fix! Beautiful work and what how wonderful that the white gelly roll only shows when it's lit. Great work!
