Lamp Shade Makeover

10/14/2013 04:51:00 pm

Nach langer Zeit wieder ein Projekt aus unserer Wohnung: diese Lampe war schon sehr betagt mit einem Papierschirm der dreckig und zerrissen war. Also erstmal ab damit!



After quite a while it's finally time for a project from our flat again! This lamp was already quite aged with a dirty and broken paper shade. First thing was to take this all off!





Als nächstes Stoff kaufen und falschherum um die Lampe wickeln, um die Maße zu bekommen. Oben und an den Seiten feststecken. Die lange Seite kann jetzt schon mit der Maschine genäht werden!

Next up, buy fabric and wrap around the lamp the wrong way round in order to easily get the measurements. Pin in place at the top and on the side. Sew together the side with your sewing machine.







Jetzt den Schlauch über die Lampe fädeln und mit Hand oben zusammennähen.

Now just pull the tube over the lamp's body and sew the top together by hand.




Da der Fuß auch kaputt war und das Beschwermaterial (=Beton) kontinuierlich rausbröckelt, habe ich die Lampe in einen Pflanzuntersetzer vom Baumarkt gestellt!

As the foot was also broken and the material to weight the lamp (=concrete) was continually crumbling and falling on the floor, I simply put it into a saucer from the DIY store!
