Josefina Farmer Lamp Shades September 03rd, 2018 - 04:47:37
The basis of this shade is definitely there's a lampshade frame. Okay, you need to wash your top and a ring bottom you're gonna want a really nice fabric, some wallpaper, a nice cutting surface okay to protect your table, tops, and scissors exact knife and a bunch of rollers. Okay. So now tell me about measuring so you're gonna go around here. You're gonna do the circumference right. Yes, we want to get this a conference to know how long to cut your fabric. This is gonna, be the drum shade, which means the top and the bottom are actually the same sizes. Okay, so we measured ours already. We know it's 44 inches okay and we want what to that measurement.
You want to add three quarters of an inch, so we've measured that out and we're gonna cut this, and this looks like a red, silk fabric, right, silk, and what's great about this fabric, is it's very forgiving, oh good, and now what we're gonna do is actually cut our adhesive, and this adhesive is from an art, store it's double-sided. The next step is to cut in the wallpaper, and this one is a great graphic. Past is beautiful. It's from Graham and brown. We're gonna cut this to the exact measurement that we want our shade to be again. We're gonna cut this one to be just shy of that 44 and 3/4.
We're actually gonna go back to the red fabric and the adhesive. That's gone. We're gonna take one side of our adhesive off right, slowly, starting from one short edge and you're gonna pry that in the middle of your fabric, so you start on the edge there and just to sort of tug at the fabric as you go, it can get a little overwhelming with it with the adhesive? It then sticks to you. I've had it stick all over what happens if it bubbles a little bit. Even if you get some bubbles, you can usually work them out with your fingers. Another great thing about the silk so now this is the paper backing for this, the second side of the adhesive, and what we'll do is slowly peel this back.
So you want to line this up as evenly as possible to your edge as you bring the wallpaper down you're going to release the backing. So now we're moving on to applying it to the frame I've taken the adhesive and made small strips so that we can wrap the fabric around the frame. You want to do that just about an eighth of an inch below the edge of the wallpaper, which again is the exact measurement of your frame for the other side, now we're ready to wrap our frames. Okay, this is the part. That's really tricky because you have to wrap the fabric around the frame and roll it at the same time. What I'm going to do is peel off my adhesive and start wrapping.
I'm going to I'm lining up the ring to the top of the wallpaper I'm pulling tightly and a hearing the fabric, I'm really pulling it tight around the wire frame and also taking care to line it up. So we've completed the bottom, and the next thing to do would be to turn it over and at the top. Now. The one thing to think about here is that you want your washer, see how it has a little bit of an inset. If you want that to be on the inside, so next we're ready to fly the suit, which is the great finished trim.
