|custom light shade in Thomas Paul fabric by Duralee|
Pull off trim (thankfully it's only glued on). Cut fabric to size and make sure it fits.
Ughh, 1 inch too short! Dilemma, do I use two pieces of fabric, which would mean two seams, or use one piece and cover the seam with some extra fabric?
Decided to have only one seam. I didn't even try to match up the pattern because the seam will be facing the wall and you won't really see it. Next step, spray glue the fabric and roll it on the shade. Easier said than done. I think the fabric stuck to my leg a thousand times, and managed to attract assorted hairs and fluff, yuck.
I did contemplate making matching piping from the thomas paul fabric, but fortunately the original piping was still intact, and matched the shade nicely.
And because the room is taking so long to finish, I thought I'd show you a quick before and after.
Almost finished, but have a few more projects lined up. Hardest part is deciding what is going to go where on the shelves.
