Don't throw away your old lampshades!
The Goodwill has a BAD habit of writing on their items with either a wax pencil or marker. For some things it's okay and the marks will come off easily. Not the case for this lampshade!!!
It was in great shape except for the broken metal piece at the top which could be easily fixed. I just glued it back together.
However, they wrote on the fabric with marker!
The marker shows when the light is on!!!
I removed the fabric...
I wrapped the entire frame of the shade with jute...
Finally, I knotted twine around the tops of bottle brush Christmas trees and hung them from the top of the shade...
You could leave it plain or add other embellishments to create your own unique shade!
