It's amazing how quick Mondays roll around! Well, here is another Mod Podge project for ya...
This week my daughter will be heading back to college. It's sad to see her go, but I'm hoping this year will be just like last year when we had the privilege of seeing her most weekends when she made the drive back home.
Last summer I was all consumed with beautifying Sarah's dorm room and worked really hard, even through many nights, to have everything done by the move in date. You can see how it all turned out in the post I wrote about "My Daughter's Dorm Room". Now, we're dragging everything out of storage and are ready to set up her space once again.
I thought I would share this simple project with you all today. I gave one of my yard sale finds a redo for the perfect bedside lamp for Sarah's room.
Here are my instructions:
- Make a template of the lampshade using a large piece of newspaper; Cut out 1/2 inch larger on each side and the ends.
- Trace around the template on the backside of desired fabric; Cut out.
- Apply Fabric Mod Podge on the outside of lamp shade until evenly coated. Make sure you go back over any spots that might have dried.
- Position your cut fabric piece over the lampshade and smooth out with your fingers adding additional Mod Podge as needed. Overlap the seam and fold the excess fabric toward the inside of the shade for a finished look.
- Attach trim along top and bottom of shade if desired.
You might have an old lampshade that could use a little revamping too!
