Handmade paper is the best thing to replace an old, out dated lamp shade. I am working on the one in the picture for my dining room. The first picture shows the old shade which I took off of the rings, well, it was so old that it fell right off. The next picture shows the torn paper which is part of the design (third pic) laying on the old shade which is opened out.
Next I glued the papers together to make the long shade.
Tomorrow, I will start gluing my paper on the rings. More pictures to come.
Message me if you would like a custom shade for an existing lamp.
