    That lampshade is simply a DELIGHT! How did you turn fabric into a lampshade? I have been searching for the perfect lampshade, but would much rather craft it!

    It’s very simple. A little spray adhesive, a sharp pair of scissors and scrap paper for a template. I cut the fabric 1/4″ more at each edge so that it could be wrapped under. You can always use a fabric glue to tack down the corners too! Make sure you use a pattern with scrap paper, it will save you time and frustration.

    Christine, thank you for visiting the Blog! Covering a lampshade is a great way to bring patten & color to a simple lamp base and to the room. Glad you liked it!

    Love the room! I’m thinking of purchasing the West Elm velvet drapes in iron for our bedroom. Are they lined, or heavy enough fabric to block light? It doesn’t say on the website and came across your blog (fab, btw) in searching for reviews, etc. Thank you!

    Hi Megan,
    Yes they are lined but I have never used them to block light. I think they would work great, you may need to buy more to make sure they cover the width of the window because they are not very wide. I love mine.
    Thanks for the comment.

    Oh I hope it’s not too late to ask a question about this paint color. I am having the hardest time finding the “perfect gray for my daughter’s new big girl room” I wanted a true grey, something soft and light. But everything seems to have undertones!!! I see you used Stonington Gray which is a sample up on the walls right now. But I keep reading it has blue undertones. Is that the case in your room. The room I am painting also has a large set of windows on one side only. Her bedding will all be simple white and I want to add lot’s of silver and crystal accents along with touches of black here and there. With pops of pink and the rug is a black and white pattern. Do you think Stonington Gray will work or will it look too blue? Please HELP…

    Hi Esme,
    I love the color because it does have the blue undertones. I also added a velvet drape from West Elm that is a shade warmer than the paint. I have a huge window in the office and the sun comes in most of the morning. The space looks much brighter and blue during that time. From the afternoon on the room is more of a gray blue and much warmer.
    I think with the colors you have selected, the room will be fabulous, it’s a happy color and will relate will with black, white and any accent you bring in.
    I hope this helps.
    Thanks for stopping by the blog.

    Thank you so much for your response…
    Even though I absolutely love the look of your office. I really wanted to stick with a more true gray. Would you possibly be able to recommend a paint color, not too light not too dark. That has “no undertones” or does one even exist??? I’m beginning to think it doesn’t…LOL!
