Chelsea from FarmFresh Therapy created a beautiful fabric drum shade lamp for her living room using our DIY Lampshade materials. She’s at her second lamp making project, giving new purpose to a pair of vintage lamps she found in a second hand shop some years ago. In a previous DIY lamp project, she created this beauty for her son’s nursery room. We fell in love back then and we rekindled that love with her newest drum shade lamp.
“I had previously had a floral shade on the lamp but it was a little too feminine for our new living room. We are trying to keep it a little more simplistic and masculine (although I am probably failing at that because it feels eclectic boho… guess I just can't deny my love for feminine accents!) so I decided to toss the floral shade.
I searched for hours for the perfect drum shade for the lamp and just couldn't find anything I liked for the right price. I've had this problem in the past and the DIY lampshade kits and supplies from i like that lamp have always saved me (see the one we made for Evan's room here). So after browsing through my huge fabric stash, I found a beautiful vintage fabric that I love and got my supplies from i like that lamp. A few steps later and I have the perfect customized lampshade way within our budget!”
