I love Saturdays!


What a great day thrifting! Found this fabulous 70's lamp. It needs rewiring and the shade is definitely in need of total body cosmetic surgery but it will be perfect for my living room make over. That's the fabulous fabric I mentioned in last week's WINKS. It's by metremade and just arrived. I had plans to use it on another two lampshades but it must be fate that I found this lamp. Perhaps I'll just use it as a trim on a crisp white shade. I definitely love Saturdays!

Love the map... for the shae why not do a crisp white shade with a green binding at the edges, and use that fabric as the lining for the shade....just a thought

Mark, what a genius idea. Jo, do what he said!!!!

It's a great idea Mark! The problem is that the fabricis only 65cm wide (size of the silk screen I'm guessing) and the shade is 80cm tall. So it's order more fabric and have a join line vertically or come up with more solutions.

Have to check if a much shortened lamp shade will look too stumpy. This momma is a huge baby! I want the stripes inside now. Godammit Mark. I'd convinced myself it wouldn't work and now I'm checking out ways it might.

Hey Jo,

I'm loving the lamp, very cool. Be sure to show us the end results. I would use the fabric as accent cushions in the same room and just put a crisp white shade on the lamp.
