Bohemian Chic Lampshade

I was wandering through Anthropologie last week and became enamored with their embellished lampshades. I decided to make one myself. After all, for what they were asking, I could buy a dress instead. (Which I did.)  I gathered together a collection of textile remnants from my studio stash, borrowed Carl's Super 77 spray adhesive (sshhh don't tell) and just dove into the project.  My style is a jumbled mix of a little bit of everything so I enjoyed the mashup of plaid, florals, silks and knits with a few ribbons and trims. It was a really fun project and I finished the shade within a couple hours.
