Last week I told you there was some exciting things going on. One of those things is I got asked to design a space for a bridal show this weekend! I will tell you all the wonderful ideas and show you all the pictures of this soon.
As I was shopping in the dollar store for some inexpensive supplies, I came across a sink mat. I know, what does a sink mat have to do with a drum shade?
I loved the tiny squares and thought it would look great as a ruffled panel for the Bridal Show. So I bought some coffee filters and went to work.
I started to connect them with wire so I could have my ruffled panel and my mind started thinking of something else.
I made a cylinder shape and wired it together. It looked just like a drum shade. I then just made it to slipcover if you will, the existing shade. It could become the shade by itself too with some wire.
For just a couple of dollars it transformed into a beautiful drum shade.
Even with the lamp on it was still adorable!
You just never know what you can come up with when you look at something in a different way.
Again thanks to the dollar store for giving me the tools to think outside the box!!!
Now I have to take it apart so I can make my panel. I got a little side tracked and I still have lots to do. What till you see!!!!!
Go ahead and try something different today!
