The Make Lounge - Making Lampshades!

A couple of weeks ago, I went to The Make Lounge to try their bespoke lampshade course. I'd been looking for the perfect shade to go on my Graham and Green Tripod lamp (bought sans shade from their warehouse sale for less than half price).

I've gone over to the dark side and painted my living room in Farrow and Ball's Downpipe - partially thanks to Abigail Ahern whom I love! Her sister's flat is my dream home and i have to admit to taking a lot of inspiration from.

Anyway, back to the course... it was amazing and actually really simple. A strip of fabric, some double sided tape and the er, lampshade kit and I was good to go! I wanted something to offset the grey that had a retro feel - what do you think (ignore the mess)?

Please note the fact that my helmet is an interior accessory because it's worth it!
step 1 - choose your fabric, or you are free to bring your own
step 2 - sticking the fabric onto the self adhesive drum shade 
step 3 - tucking in the extra fabric to cover the frame
and the other side...

The finished product!

side note: i've since changed my blinds as I broke one of them and then realised that actually white blinds would be nicer convinient huh?!?
