    Oh my! You’ve done it again.
    I have a lampshade, the same shape as yours that—back in the 60s—was adorned with three rows of ribbon, rick-rack and trim. I just relieved this faded pink shade of the dusty trim and have been racking my brain to come up with a way to update it without tearing it to shreds. And then I find your post!
    I have a vintage French/English dictionary with a destroyed cover and missing pages I’ve already used for crafting. It will be magnifique for this purpose!
    I think it’s stopped raining, so I must rush to my outdoor studio and take a “before” picture, before I turn this dismal shade into a masterpiece!
    Thanks so much!
