I bought this lamp ages ago on a boot fair it needed lots of TLC
but at 50p I thought it was worth a go
I have since replased all the plastic bits with brass and waxed the wooden base. I have ripped off the fabric from an old shade, now this is where I need your help can anyone direct me to a site for lampshade making or do you have any good ideas, the frame is a bit like the ones below
I'm not even sure what fabric to use having tried a few nothing looks right. Many years ago I made shades using string just binding it around it, well looked good at the time :)
I have been pulling ivy off the roof again, I'm so tired, but we did manage to get a cover over part of the roof to stop anymore water damage, there is a great mound of roots to get rid of, can't ever see this getting finished.
Hope your all enjoying doing something you like wherever you are
