We are in the sloooowwww process of updating our living room and I finally can officially check a project off my list! I found this great pair of vintage lamps many many years ago at a little second hand shop in our town (crazy story, I bought one first and then went back almost a year later and the other one was still there!) and I love love love them. When we redid our living room we decided that since we didn't have a place to put the lamps symmetrically that we would pair it down to just one (don't worry we kept the other one in storage). I had previously had a floral shade on the lamp but it was a little too feminine for our new living room. We are trying to keep it a little more simplistic and masculine (although I am probably failing at that because it feels eclectic boho… guess I just can't deny my love for feminine accents!) so I decided to toss the floral shade. I searched for hours for the perfect drum shade for the lamp and just couldn't find anything I liked for the right price. I've had this problem in the past and the DIY lampshade kits and supplies from i like that lamp have always saved me (see the one we made for Evan's room here). So after browsing through my huge fabric stash, I found a beautiful vintage fabric that I love and got my supplies from i like that lamp. A few steps later and I have the perfect customized lampshade way within our budget!
See the full DIY and make sure to keep i like that lamp in mind for any of your lighting needs! They have a wide variety of shade supplies as well as other DIY lighting supplies!
