Hello lovely fellow crafters. I'm in the middle of redecorating my room and have been hunting the local thrift stores for a suitable floor lamp. I'm decorating in this moroccan/boho theme and I know that I'll want to alter my lamp/shade accordingly but I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas.

I've seen plenty of beautiful altered lamps and shades with more of a chinese paper lantern look or with a lot of lace and frills, but not so much with the bohemian theme. Any suggestions/pictures you'd like to offer to help me on my quest? Tutorials are great but not necessary, I already have most of the skills/tools needed to do this, just not the inspiration to start.

Thanks!

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies! 

Also, I have a pintrest now Smiley

What about either paint or paper layering on the shade? You could use swirls, stars and some of your key colors. Keep it simple, yet visually interesting. Smiley
