This is the second lampshade I have made for a floor lamp in our dining room. It was made from a burn-out velvet scarf purchased from ebay. I hand-dyed the fringe & gimp trim. The beaded trim was also an ebay purchase. Since the wire frame is an Asian style shade, I opted for the same style of finial.
I love vintage/quirky lamps - restoring them and making lampshades for them, re-painting flea-market finds, and a good mystery (either on TV or on audio-book which I can listen to as I work on lampshades.
I live in the country in central California with my husband and daughter.
