Doily Lamp Shade


More inspirational projects from my Home Talkers. I just had to give it a try. Had a very ugly old lamp shade and it was cracky. Need to be retired.
Was inspired by someone here on Home Talk. My lamp needed a make over. 
I love the effects of doily on the walls when it's lite.

Used doilies.  I didn't have enough of the ones I liked so I stole them from my Mom's house. Well she said she didn't want them, to much moving when dusty.

      No I don't, but I stretched the doilies taut, not tight and sewed them together, starting with the largest one, till I lamp was covered with openings in between and effect I like.
