The goal here was cheap, cheap, cheap so I purchased this shade at Target for $5.00. I would have liked a little bit smaller one, but you can’t beat that price.
I laid out the fabric I wanted to use and got my handy dandy spray adhesive. The white underneath is a bunch of paper I laid out. I was too lazy to get my tablecloth. Be careful, though. The adhesive is messy and gets everywhere.
If you have plenty of fabric, it doesn’t matter how you roll it out, but I was dealing with a scrap piece. I had to make sure I rolled it pretty precise. I sprayed the shade and the fabric then let it sit for a minute or so. It gets tackier if you let it sit.
Once it’s rolled on and smoothed out, just trim the excess off. I trim it pretty close so there’s no excess fabric underneath that shows when the lamp is on.
