DIY Lamp Shade

DIY Lamp Shade
 
Inspired by an image I saw on Pinterest, I customized a boring and unappealing lamp shade for a vintage lamp I purchased at auction.  Using a basic shade, spray adhesive, tracing paper, a soft lead pencil, a felt pen, white glue, a paint brush and book pages. I used pages from a bible that my little girl left in the rain this past summer. I saved it knowing I would re-purpose it somewhere. The pages are thin so the light comes through well. You could use any kind of book really, kids books, news paper, wrapping paper, wall paper etc.
