You should be hearing that line spoken in the deep, mystical way that only Cate Blanchett can. I've been on a Lord of the Rings kick this week. (In the past month it's been Harry Potter, Mad Men, and The Kenney's miniseries.) It's quite funny because I don't really even like watching tv usually. But this past month has been crazy and at the end of the day there's nothing better than crawling under the covers and plunging yourself into a completely other world. LOTR is especially nice as it doesn't have cars or basements... grumblegrumblegrumble. Seriously, though, this is a tutorial about how to recover a lamp shade.
I've wanted a nice lamp for the living room for awhile but I haven't found something to match the style of the living room and my budget. So I picked up this lamp at Target for $12 and recovered the shade to match my decor. This was the result.
And there you have it, my trusting living room lamp. I'm going to do one for my bedroom next, then who knows what else! Maybe I'll make the ugliest one I can think of and give it to someone who's getting married as a gag gift. But not tell them it's a gag gift. That would be hilarious. Also, next time I'm using spray adhesive instead fabric glue. The end!
