new recovered lamp shade

I found this old lamp shade at the thrift store for a whole 1 dollar.   Perfect for a lampshade recovering project ~ great size and lines too.  The fabric I bought ages ago and had just enough to try this out. I had the glue and the perfect matching bias tape for the edging so this project cost next to nothing.

I used this handy video for assistance. I did everything outside because of the glue fumes, which were very yucky.  And I highly recommend a drop cloth.  The sticky spray glue is not easy to wash off of things. Other than that, the project was fairly easy.
