The white one is a lamp shade i covered with venise(or venice i've it both ways so not sure which one) lace, its hanging over the light fixture with ribbon,, i wanted it to hang it lower, but then you could see the light

The black one is just the lamp shade metal rings. i added extra rings made from wire coat hangers and connected those with jewelry wire, theres no light in this one, its just for looks

Oh wow, those look awsome. Definately gonna have to try that sometime. You could probably easily string a light for the black one, or maybe even find some kind of battery operated LED light for it....oh! or line the metal rings with xmas lights, that might look cool...ok maybe I just think anything with xmas lights looks cool, but it might work Wink

thanks,,lol i agree lots of cool stuff to with xmas lights,,,i thought about a light for the black, or putting it over the light thats on the ceiling,,but that one is in the girls bathroom and the ceiling light has the fan and is off center in the room, so thats why i didnt put anything and wanted it centered, they use the lights over the mirror anyway Roll Eyes

It looks lovely - I would love to have the white one. How did the lampshade look, before you put the lace on it? Did it have rings?

Thanks,,Taramor the lamp shade was a large white one, and still had the material on it,,its the style that has rings at the top and bottom and 4 vertical bars connecting them,,,i found that lampshade on the side of the road during the bulk pick up time ((i love that time of year lol), not sure why they tossed it cause it was sparkling white and new looking

the black one didnt have the shade material just rings,,i salvage all kinds of pieces from broken stuff lol hoping that it can be used for something else, i think i'm a junk junky,,,, but an organized junk junky Cheesy

Ooh, these are GORGEOUS!  I never would have thought that a boring lampshade could look so awesome!
