A new look for an old lampshade

I don’t know about you, but it is really hard to find a good lampshade these days. It was time I took things into my own hands and created what I was looking for.

I had received a hand-me-down lampshade from my grandmother (via mum). It had a rather grand marble base that could also second as a lethal weapon, which had a chip out of the bottom corner (which begs the question… once upon a time, ‘did Gran test this out as a weapon’). I could handle the chip in the base (whilst intrigued as to how it got there!)… I simply turned the base so the chip faces the back wall – problem solved. What I particularly liked about it was the oval shaped lampshade. What I didn’t like about it was the cream lampshade looked washed-out with the white marble base.
