Still can't figure out what to do...

... about these darn lampshades. I am not sure if you remember the big flowers I made to put on these lampshades? They just didn't look right, mostly because they weren't made out of solid fabric. I didn't really want to have to start all over, they were very time consuming to make. So I thought this might work for a punch of color? My accent color is coral, so I thought maybe it'd be a nice place to put some. I am just not sure how I feel about it. I am going to leave it for now, and then see how it looks in the room. I also still have the large flowers. I was thinking I might try spray painting them to make them solid.

I guess I'll see how this looks first. Might be just a bit too frilly for me.


  1. Maybe instead of having the rosettes go around the bottom you should position them like in this blog:

    Good luck!

    1. I actually pinned that lampshade a long time ago lol. I can't really do that, since I have two identical lamps that will be going on the same credenza and they would look weird not being symmetrical. I am pretty sure I am giving up on trying to add color to the lampshades. :/
