diy Lampshade makeovers

Through the years……

as Kenny Rogers would sing.

I have done A LOT of diy lampshade makeovers.

Well not A LOT, but more than the norm I think.

I love it.

How about we take a trip down memory lampshade lane.

I have to say it is a lot of fun to reflect back.

I sure have changed and grown some since blogging…and when I say grow I mean in terms of my decorating.

Y’all have taught me a lot.

    You are definitely the lampshade makeover queen, Debbie!! I didn’t realize there were so many and all so cute!! I don’t remember seeing the ceiling medallion…that is fabulous!

  2. Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says

    You did some pretty makeovers, Debbie! I love doing over lampshades, too. It helps me use up my left over fabrics and I can get a new look for a few bucks {if it costs me anything at all}. I have one in my craft/sewing room that I’m waiting to get some inspiration for.

  3. Becca says

    You are the lampshade queen, Debbie! I love all of the different ways you’ve embellished them to suit the season, space or feeling! I just might have to pull out my glue gun and start embellishing a few of mine … thanks for the great tips!

  4. Kris says

    You are always up to something fun!!!

    You have certainly created a lot of lampshade beauty and I love that medallion stencil….would love to know where you found it!

  6. Ricki Jill Treleaven says

    Well you know I love your lampshade makeovers! That little owl lamp is adorable. I think you’d love Dena’s book because you like embellishing things, too!


  7. Jill Flory says

    Love the ceiling stencil! And I’m with you on the whole ‘changed since blogging’ thing! So many great ideas for fun ways to use the stuff you have!

  8. Cindy says

    Your shades are so pretty, especially love the last two with your rooster. Have always loved the way you did your ceiling medallion!

  9. Leena Lanteigne says

    Great shade make-overs! I remember a few of them but the others I hadn’t seen – they’re all fantastic! I really like the changes you make to the shade on the rooster lamp! So many different looks – such fun! Thanks for all the inspiration, Debbie! Hugs, Leena

  10. Shannon @ Fox Hollow Cottage says

    Will we have to re name you Lampshade Lana or something? 😉 hehe
    Still love the little lampshade when you did the owl guestroom! So cute.

    Hope you get that fixed soon, I know it’s bothering you :(

  11. Linda says

    Love your shade ideas and of course, that rooster lamp that seems to don quite a few of the updates :-) Also love the background paisley design of our webpage — would love to have some fabric to match – whoa, nellie!

  12. Melanie says

    You have been busy through the years…I think you and I have a fetish with lampshades, lol! I love looking back Debbie, it sure amazes me at all you’ve done!

  13. says

    Are you kidding? That is a ton of lampshades. I have NEVER embellished or made one but you’ve given me an excellent idea for that vintage paper wall guest bedroom I’m working on! Yay–thanks!

  14. says

    Hi Debbie, you do such fun things with all your projects and all the shades are no exception. I love the fall one with the poppys and ribbon..Happy Weekend..Judy

  15. says

    Do you ever sleep?? :) I swear, you’ve done more to your lampshades than I’ve done to my entire house! Great ideas. The stenciled one and the ribbon-trimmed one are my faves, but they’re all pretty cool :)
