My Creative Space

Thought I would have a go at covering my bedroom lamp shades today to give them a bit of a lift as they looked so plain.

Fabric all cut spray ready be careful with that spray I thought my room was well ventilated but ended up having to go out side, then I didn't check the wind direction first hee.

 I was thinking what have I started?  If I work with the spray glue again I think a mask will be purchased. I entertained myself making them, thank god I didn't video it you would have had a laugh.

I am so pleased how they turned out the glue does hold well on the fabric as one of the shades I realised I had put the fabric on upside down as you can see by the run of the pattern that would have been wrong told ya I was having fun & games hee.

Happy Creating.

    I started some stupid old ones over at my place about three years ago and the fabric was old and stained so decided to rip it off and start with a bare frame the other day. That was a bad idea!
    You are much smarter than that, wind direction and all :)
