Lampshade update

I have a thing for birds,
 as many of you know
so, when I found this lamp,
I knew I had to make it mine!

The shade was way too plain,
so I dolled it up with deep blue fringe..

It stayed that way for about a year, but I knew it wasn't perfect-
you know when something bothers you 
as you pass it by-
I accessoried the table it was on-
I changed the tchotchkes, now and then-
but,
it still wasn't right so-
I ripped the fringe off and grabbed some burlap-







cut it into strips, rolled it into circlets and created rosettes-
once they were done, I took some rope
 and glued it around the top opening to cover up the raw edges




I love the new look
 and it was so simple to change it up-
 I see the rosettes on so many blogs
 and I love the look and texture
with the burlap, don't you?
 
Well, take care, gotta fly- Claire
