Embroidered Lamp Shade

Embroidred Lamp Shade

While I enjoy a fancy lamp shade as much as the next design-obsessed girl, I think it’s pretty crazy how much some high-end retailers charge for them.  $100 or more for just the shade?  That’s just not in my budget.  Mollie from Wild Olive had a great idea for embellishing a plain shade, giving it a simple (but time-consuming) makeover with a needle and some embroidery thread.  The pattern she chose is elegant yet playful, resulting in a look that would be just as at home in a formal living room as in a dorm room.
