Juneberry Home: DIY Lamp Shade Fun!

I have been busy at work putting together baby girl's nursery and I can't wait to share the results with you!  We have a pretty tiny space that previously served as an office, but that isn't making the decorating any less fun!  And being that we are only about SIX WEEKS(?!?!) from being considered 'full-term', I figured I'd better get serious!

But as I've perused along searching for inspiration, I've run into all sorts of DIY fun that I wanted to share with you...simple & creative ways to turn your ordinary lamp shade into a work of art.  And you know I am all about the details!  So here are a few ideas to get you inspired . . .

Check out the oh-so-simple tutorial on how to cover the shade of your lamp with fabric by popping on over to this site right HERE: Young House Love

Pretty simple and so full of character too!  What's more, you can pick yourself up a used lamp & shade at any old vintage store or Goodwill, dust it off, and paint the base for less than $7.  A few swatches of leftover fabric from your local Jo Ann's or even an old t-shirt or pair of tights you no longer wear, a hot glue gun, a bit of paint, and a light bulb and you are all set!  Have fun!
