A Subtle Change

I've been trying to get little projects finished up in my boys' rooms so that I can move on to other areas of the house. This weekend I took some time and added grosgrain ribbon to the $13 Wal-mart (who knew, right?) lampshade in Will and Charlie's room. It seems like a pretty simple, little project but here are a few tips to get it looking crisp:

1) start on the lamp shade seam and end on the seam
2) if using fabric glue, brush a thin coat onto your ribbon
3) press firmly and smooth it as you go, avoid having excess glue on your hands
while you do this



I think the end result is well worth it! Our dog lamp feels more"finished":)
