I had these lovely buffet lamps, but didn't have any shades for them.
I found some shades, but they were
1. too plain and
2. a little too short for the lamps.
I knew I would need something to extend the shades down a bit AND make them more romantic.
I thought of a crystal beaded trim, feather trim, even just a plain gimp type trim,
but those just didn't seem foo fooey enough for my taste and some just wouldn't extend the lampshades down far enough either.
I found these BEAUTIFUL roses at a local store and immediately knew what I wanted to do to my lamps.
I felt like Morticia Adams pulling the rose heads off all the stems!
Of course, unlike Morticia, I wanted the flowers not the stems. :)
The process was SUPER easy.....pull off flower heads, hot glue on the bottom edge of the lamp shade. Presto, change-o...........new romantic lampshades!
I did help the flowers "bloom" out a little more so they would be fluffier on my lampshades. :)
I think it made a HUGE difference. The roses extended the lampshades down enough and definitely made the plain jane shades more romantic. I am MORE than pleased with the outcome! Don't cha' love it when a plan comes together!
