Lampshades are more than just for wearing on your head

March 28, 2008

I am trying to involve my daughter, Haley, in as much of this re-design as she will tolerate.  (Zac Efron is much more interesting than rugs – most of the time 🙂 )

I love the shape of my hanging lamps and now that the big purchases are made I need to start looking for economies, so I have been torturing the child with ideas for things to cover the shades in 🙂 The rug is such a dominating pattern that I want to add girliness with texture.

Presently, they are stock turquoise (shocking, huh?) Skimra lampshades


Capiz Shells…though I don’t think the coolness would translate if they weren’t all dangly-riffic…

Coordinating Fabric…. *yawn*.  I am making curtains out of steel gray satin to tie in with the baseboards, but covering the lamps in it may just make me lapse in to a coma.

Feathers!…  Haley thought I should be committed when I suggested this, but how girly would that be????  (And apparently I’d have company in my feather-covered loony bin!)  (And I swear, I thought of this before I found this pic!)

Little mirrors… to pay homage to our favorite housekeeping/go-go dancing song, Shiny Disco Balls 🙂





  1. […] you some kind of freak???” to many of my “GIRLIE” design suggestions.  (ie:  feathers – some people just have NO imagination! […]

  2. one time I wore feathers….I was asked to leave that bar…oh well….
