Julia, I did a lamp shade like this once. Never again I thought -to many pins and too much glue on my hands. Then I discovered hot glue guns. Work went twice as fast, I found I had a better finish and I was sooooo less frustrated...lol. Can't wait to see how your shade turns out. I love the fringing you purchased. Simply lovely.
I'll be watching very closely too. I have an antique floor lamp that I love and use all the time but the shade is in very very bad shape. I just never knew how to recover it.
Thanks for posting the instructions Julia, I have some old lamp shades in my shed I've kept for so long - and never brought the book to go along with doing them. Your finished lamp looks so gorgeous and I loved seeing the snippet of your lovely items in your home. Sticky beak that I am!!! LOL
