Lamp Shade - 15 minute DIY

So, we were cleaning up stuff and were wondering what to do with the leftover fabric of the earlier floor lamp . It was just one long strip of cloth and so there wasn't much left to do anything big. We didn't want to throw it off either and so we decided to use whatever that was available to convert our wall lamp into something colorful. So, here's what we did - A quickfire, 15 minute DIY.

  1. The wall fitting we zeroed in was just perfect for our need. It was square and was made of glass
  2. We unscrewed the glass fitting from the wall, and decided to merely cover it with the fabric.
  3. We cut the fabric to the required dimension, stretched and glued it onto the sides

This is how it looked after we put the fitting back into its place.  Another DIY right in the entrance and we so love it. :)
