Good Morning Friends, I hope you all had a great weekend!!
I know I sure did enjoy the actual "Spring-like" weather here in Northern California, for a change!! It’s so beautiful to have the garden in bloom and the windows open again, It always seems to take me back to that childhood feeling when summer break was near and all is right with the world. Now, On with the show!!
Okay , so, as promised, today is Monday, and I am sharing with you my NO COST new little Romantic Ruffled Redo. I have to say I am in love with how this turned out!
If you’ve been following my blog, you may remember the Double Ruffled French Country Cottage inspired Tablecloth that I made out of white sheets, purchased @ the GW.. If you do, great! If this is your first time here click on the Link to the right that says April and then French Country Cottage Inspired Double Ruffle..
What to do with all that left over white sheet fabric??
Well, I actually had no problem there. More Romantic Ruffles, Yay!! Probably not in a way you would expect, although, I did use some of the leftover sheet for a beautiful little Valance over my bathroom window, that I will share with you on another day. But by far, my favorite little redo, is my Ruffley (sp.?) Little Lampshade Redo~
This project was not too difficult and as you can see from the before image very necessary!! I simply made more Ruffles and attached 4 layers of them to my old lampshade pictured here above right. And Voila!
Isn't this the cutest little shade you ever seen?
On the top ruffle, I turned the top of the fabric down about and inch1/2 to created the little Ruffle you see at the top! Then, of course, I had to finish it off with a simple little satin bow. What do you think?
All in all, I am very happy with how this turned out and I dare you to beat the price!!! FREE!!
I simply made 3” Ruffles, from leftover material, attached them to my lampshade, with a my handy-dandy glue gun(this shade was headed for the garbage, anyway) and then topped it off with a little ribbon I had laying around the house!
If you have a lamp in your Bathroom, as I do, covering your shade (anyway you like!) Is a quick, simple, easy and inexpensive way to bring some more elegance into the room!
Not to mention the money you save!!
I hope you all have a Wonderful day full of God’s Blessings! Let me know what you think and visit these other sites below for even more great inspiration.
