Lamp shade re-do

After seeing Alissa lamp re-do post at 33 Shades of Green, I had to give it a try.  After all she made it seem easy enough.  So, off I went to my favorite thrift store in search of lamp shade.  I was very fortunate to find a new shade, packaging and all for under $3.                                                                                                                                          
I purchased some inexpensive fabric at Joann's and began to recover my shade. 

I'm not in love with my fabric choice.  Since this was my first attempt I didn't want to purchase anything too expensive just in case I wasn't happy with my finished product.  What do you think?!?!

  1. It looks like you did a great job! Especially with the shape of the lampshade you found. It looks like it was a tricky shape to cover!

  2. thanks for the inspiration alissa! i owe it all to you! : )

  3. I actually like the fabric choice. It's different, and I love different!!! TYFS
