I’d like to thank Faultless® Premium Starch for sponsoring this DIY post!
I have such an easy project to share with you today. My husband likes to tease me about my ‘lamp problem.’ My lamp problem is that I like to buy lamps for their shape, but the shades are almost always the wrong color! Haha, well, maybe I am just picky. Anyway, I have figured out the easiest way to recover a lampshade so I do it all the time. If you have a lamp shade you don’t love the color of, all you need is a few minutes and a couple supplies to give it a face lift!
Here is what I started with: a small lamp I got from Target on clearance – but the shade was cork. Nothing wrong with it, It just wasn’t working for me. I had some of this white and gold plus sign fabric that I have been hoarding for at least a year + I knew it would be perfect!
What you need:
No Sew Tape
Start by measuring your lampshade, then add 1/2 inch to each edge.
Mark the fabric where you need to cut.
Turn fabric over, spray it well with Faultless Starch and iron 1/2 inch edges over (as pictured below.)
Faultless starch is what makes this ironing part SO quick and easy. I love not having to hassle much with the ironing! The folded seams are crisp right away with Faultless, and the fabric looks perfect when you wrap it around the shade.
Use mod podge or no sew tape to attach fabric to your lampshade. Pull tightly around the shade as you attach so there won’t be any new wrinkles!
VOILA. You have a ‘new’ lamp!
