Hey all of you Sassy Style Gals





I am so honored to be asked by Tausha to post on her blog.  Isn't she amazing!!!





My name is Jenn and my little blog is called REDBERRY BARN.





I started my blog at the beginning of this year to help motivate me to be creative and get my projects done on my to-do-list...you know what I mean!  Come and stop by my blog & say hi!!










This is my tutorial that I made especially to debut on Sassy Style!





I was inspired by a Pottery Barn Lampshade {click here to see.}





I needed a lamp for my craft room and thought it would be a perfect fit!





Y'all...this was soooo easy to make!





It would be fun in your kitchen with recipes and pictures of dinners that you have made, in a kids bedroom with items that they love, in your living room with family pictures and etc.!! 





I love it when I can make something that I have all of the supplies on hand.





 





This is a picture of the finished product, I LOVE how it turned out!











Before Lamp Picture...I have had it forever and it was needing some TLC!











The first thing I did was spray painted the lamp and 8 clothes pins black {Krylon Black Satin Paint}.





I used Spray Adhesive {my new favorite thing!} to attach the fabric to the lampshade.  I just rolled the shade into the fabric.











Then I trimmed off the edges and attached the remaining edges to the inside.











I lined the inside with black ribbon to hide the edges of the fabric, to give it a finished look.





Then I hot glued the clothes pins to the inside of the shade.  The inspiration shade had it on the outside, but I was wanting to "hide" the pins more.

















Then I just had fun adding pictures, tags, flowers and etc. to the lampshade.  The possibilities are endless.  I will be changing this out a lot!























I hope that you enjoyed my little project and are inspired in some way to create. 





Creating is Happiness!

Have a Delightful Day!





Thank you Tausha!!!


I'm totally going to do this!!
Thanks again Jenn!!  You rock girl!!!
