Finding the perfect lamp shade for my floor lamp was proving to be difficult. I pondered to think about all of the "junk" (treasures) that I had to possible make my own lamp shade. I decided on chicken wire with no frame. I had never done anything like this before but my mind was set it was going to be designed. My Mom helped a lot. She has refinished furniture, upholstered, seamstress, and the list goes on. I have NONE of those talents at all. As a team I come up with the creative ideas and she helps me to implement them. Complete tutorial is on my blog in detail.
