Bee happy .... red and white spot shelves now in use

My red and white spot shelves now have a purpose.
They are in the guest bedroom displaying pretty wares.

I also want to share with you my newly covered lamp shade.

It is a Laura Ashley base and shade but I got fed up of the pink shade so decided to re-cover it with fabric to match the guest bedroom.
I chose Cath Kidston red and white star fabric for the re-covering job.

I got out my trusty glue gun and just glued the star fabric over the shade after cutting the fabric to size.
I am really pleased with the transformation and the lamp looks so much better for a change.
Have you changed anything lately?

  13. I love that lamp! I can't believe you just used a glue gun, I thought it was a complicated process to cover a shade so I've never tried. You've definitely inspired me now. Your house guests are in for a treat when they come to stay, the shelves look really lovely.xx

  14. P.S. Deb...I forgot to mention that I love the way your shelves look all filled with you cheerful goodies. Wouldn't it be fun when a guest stays to have a little welcoming gift wrapped and labeled in one of those cubbies?


  15. So simple, yet so pretty :)

  16. Your lamp is so nice. I like red and white.
    I wish you a happy rest of the week and send you a lot of greetings from Switzerland. Yvonne

  17. the fabric backing is a good idea, I've been thinking what I should do with the backing of my kitchen cabinet, and now I know!!! thanks :D
