How Do I Recover a Lampshade?


You can recover a lampshade by laying a brown paper on a flat surface and place it on the paper. Roll it across the paper and hold a marker at the top edge. Keep the marker point on the paper as you roll it making a continuous line to curve the shade. Place the lampshade at the starting position and spray the pattern with quick adhesive. Finally, measure top and bottom edge of the shade and attach with a glue gun.
