I had these lamp shades I made awhile back for the chandelier in my bedroom. I decided to change them up some for the chandelier in my living room.
|I just took white chandelier shades and added the rosette trim to the bottom and then used cream colored buttons on the top of the shade. I used my hot glue gun and it was easy peasy.|
|I had these buttons that I bought at the flea market a few years ago. Did not know at the time what I would do with them but glad I bought the jar of them for $3.|
|I used the rosette trim I got at Jo Ann Fabrics around the base. Love when all I have to do is hot glue gun something.|
|Here is the new look I gave them. I just used a sharp craft blade and sliced out the material part of the shades. It was pretty easy.|
|Here is the before and after.|
|I love the look these give to my chandelier in the living room.|
|I did not want to overwhelm the chandelier with the heavy feel of the original shades. By opening them up they give a little bling to the chandelier but keep that open look I want in this room. I just wanted to enhance the chandelier not make it heavy and fussy with the shades.|
There you have it another DIY Re purpose what you already have look. I love to re make old things into new.
