Fabric Lampshade

I ran over a lampshade today.  Actually I ran over the entire lamp.  I was driving on the freeway and there was a lamp in my lane.  I could have slammed on my brakes, but I am pretty sure the car behind me was a little too close for that.  And I thought my car would clear it...but I was wrong.  Made a hideous sound.  And it really has nothing to do with this post, except that the lampshade wasn't as cute as this one from Moda Bake Shop:

And now it never will be.  Because my car killed it.

But if you have a lampshade that needs to be prettied up, they have a tutorial on how to make this cute shade using strips of fabric.

Ok, you are lucky you're alright! Running over that lampshade could have back fired and caused damage to your car :).

LOVE this idea and I need it big time - so this is great timing! I bought a new lamp for my daughters' room, but I promised her we'd re-do the ugly floral shade, the base rocks, so it was a steal! Clever idea!

First--scary about running over a lamp. I hope that it didn't puncture any of your tires!!

Second--the shade is ADORABLE. It would be perfect in my girls room!!

Now THAT is a lamp I would put in my house! It is uber cute!

Oh and about running over the lamp. Didn't you learn anything after the fork accident?

I didn't run over a fork! That was someone else. Mine was just a rock.

(On the way to Disneyland when my car was BRAND SPANKING NEW A rock punctured my radiator and then killed my AC too. Awesome!!)

But thanks for sharing that super cute lampshade.
