My guest room's bedside lampshade had gotten kind of gross, but my guest room bedside lamp is a sort of odd shape and yet the perfect size for the wee bedside table in there.  I was poking around on pinterest and saw a burlap covered shade, realized I had some fun green burlap and decided this would save my lampshade and myself from shame.



I also had some crazy dingle ball trim in my stash and decided that already-paid-for trumped tasteful, so I just went ahead and added it.  I consulted The ManFlesh and we agreed that life is too short to not be ridiculous and that the result looks like the lamp went to a wildly fun office party and came home with a lampshade on its, uh, head.

Here it is before the trim:



Here it is when it was gross:

PS When I look at the preview of this post it has changed some of my words like an auto-correct would.  Is this an April Fool's joke?

I love that you call them dingle balls....my favourite iteration of the pom-pom (who didn't have a friend with a van that had dingle ball trim in the 70's/80's Cheesy

Cute, fun and fast - love the lamp remake!
