Paisley Lampshade 

  
This little satin lampshade that I picked up for $1 in an op shop months ago turned out to be the perfect size for one of those cute brass lamps.

  
But cream satin is yawnworthy and it was watermarked, so it needed a bit of a makeover.

This old paisley shopping bag was coming apart at the seams, but the pattern was too pretty to waste!

  
Put the two together and I had a quick little DIY project with stunning results.

  
Often a glue stick is the ideal lampshade to fabric adhesive, but the shininess of both these fabrics required a more heavy duty fabric glue. 

Spread over the shade, it was easy to stick the fabric on.

  
Then the ends got a trim before being glued down inside.

   
   
Some assistance from a few pegs to hold the edges down while they dried and voila… One gorgeous paisley lampshade on one gorgeous brass lamp!
