A wild hair...

I was playing around last night with a thought...what if...
I had an old shade frame and some raw burlap fabric, sooooo...

I whipped up a lil' rustic shade...
I wonder what golden hue this fabric will bring to light...
very primitive, yet something about it gives it a more eclectic whim...
I think the new shop will be the perfect place for this lil' gem!

Very cool!! (How did you get it to stick, or is it sewn on?) I'm still struggling out of the doldrums... inspiration only comes in little spurts, I keep daydreaming of being on my beach in S. FL (or better yet with my son in Belize)--Mom says the water is still clean. You always inspire me, so I'm going to get busy today!!

The open weave should throw some great shadow patterns!

I have been wanting to do this for a long time, I have some raw burlap and will do this first b/4 cutting up a coffee sack. Thanks for showing your wonderful talent. Hugs Mary

I made one of these last week during my home makeover and my husband said he'd have to draw the line there! He hated it! I loved it. I used a straight lampshade looked like from the 60's and set it on an old white china lamp my mom had given me from when she first set up housekeeping.
(It's in the basement now ~ hubby gets to have Some say so... I guess)

Take it one step further and paint it! I'd like to see what you can do with that.

Interesting....thanks for sharing the info!! You should do a tutorial...it's something I have never tried--I'm always trying to use wire and hang stuff on lampshades!
