This is a gorgeous mirrored standard lamp that my darling friend gave me, yes that is right gave me. I had no idea that I would love it as much as I do, but it was mirrored….and pretty….so it had good bones.
I wanted a Navy/Indigo batik style print to make it more casual which suits my Hamptons Living Style.
Here she is before, her shade was surely ready for new threads and I was excited to try and learn to cover a drum shade.
It is no secret that I love the style of Ralph Lauren and when I found this design of his I knew it was ‘the one’, and now time to work out how you recover these things…can’t be too hard I decided I have done a lot of other DIY successfully.
So I Made my pattern, cut out the fabric, glued it on, pegged it to ensure it didn’t move, left it that way to try overnight.
With the detail of the fabric and how much I really liked the shape I decided that a off white bias trim would give me a more tailored look than creating a edging from the fabric, as I wanted the shape to stand out.
And here she is in all her glory. I must say I absolutely love this lamp how it throws the colours and patterns that are in the room around and that it is a constant reminder of a dear friend who travels a lot and is very Hamptons Living.
