Cherie Hawkins Lamp Shades August 30th, 2018 - 04:02:22
Lampshade, you can find these at the thrift store for super chains. This is just a plain white drum shade that I found a little beat up, but that's okay because we're gonna be covering it. I'm going to be using this sequined fabric to cover it. This is actually an old scarf that I had, and it was just too itchy to wear so I always figured. I would turn it into something else. So the first thing I'm going to do is measure the largest part of my lampshade and that's going to be the bottom. I believe it's about 14 inches across the one that I'm working with.
So I'm just going to measure all the way around and just see how much fabric I'm actually going to need to cut I'm actually going to give it an extra couple of inches. So now I'm going to take my tape, measure and measure that out onto my fabric and once I get to that point, I'm going to go ahead and cut it right there. Since I'm working with a more narrow piece of fabric, I'm not going to worry about trimming the top yet. But if you do have a larger piece, you can go ahead and trim it down to whatever size that you want. So it's easier to work with.
So right now, because these are sequins and when you cut it, they can be, like kind of you know, cut in half or cut in pieces, I'm just going to go ahead and pluck some of those off and after I make sure that the piece of fabric fits how I want it to on my shade, then I'm going to get my board up here and prep my work area, so what I'm doing is just using this board. I use this when I'm spray painting or using spray adhesive so for this project.
I'm using 3m s77 is spray adhesive, so I'm just going to go ahead and lay my fabric down with the pretty side down. So I'm going to be looking at the underside of the fabric or the backside and just spread that out, make sure you put on your gloves because that spray adhesive is really sticky stuff and then I'm just going to spray down across the bottom.
