Just Junkin!

Hello hello! Last week I picked up two lamps for $10- what a steal! The only problem is their horrible looking shades. I really love the look of Anthropologie's lampshades like the ones you see below, but there is no way in heck I would pay their prices.

Quiet Mist Shade

Flower Valley Shade

Ibbes Shade

Carmenes Shade

So, I've decided to try and make my own lampshade using these Anthropologie shades as inspiration. When I was searching for DIY lampshades I came across this great tutorial . The gal that wrote this tutorial, Lara has a fabulous blog even if you aren't looking for a DIY lampshade. I will post pics of my shade by this Friday as it will be a Mother's Day gift!

Good luck! and just in case they don't turn out you can always pic up a cute one at Target or Urban Outfitters ;)

Love those! So looking forward to seeing your work. I know it is going to be lovely. I did one a while back and I love it! A little piece of you in a lampshade. ;) Hope your day is beautiful and inspired!
