I never thought about making my own lampshades really. I mean, why would you? Most of us are too busy thinking about living actual day to day life to be bothered by making our own lampshades. Plus, you can always buy them (Buying is easy, but much less fun!). As many of you who have been reading the blog or following me on Instagram will already know, I’m not really an “off the peg” kinda’ gal when it comes to my home. I love making or upcycling something so it’s a one off. For that reason alone, why the hell would I not want to learn how to make my own lampshades?
