Fabric Addiction


I have developed quite the fabric addiction in the last year or so, and acquired random pieces without yet knowing their destiny or purpose. Many of them will end up being used for various drapery and upholstery projects in the future, but for now I have figured out my first use for certain pieces. I desperately need lampshades. I have so many lamps that I have collected (probably going on about 15 in a one bedroom apartment, I have a bit of a problem....) and a bunch of them are naked without shades! Here are a few of the fabric pieces that I have collected....

Chenonceau by Schumacher, one of my favorites!

Another absolute love of mine, Macao by China Seas!

I love sooooo many of the Thomas Paul fabrics, especially this Silhouette one! Probably why I had to get it in not one but two colorways. ;)

I just love ikats. This one is very thin though so I'm not quite sure yet where it will be best used.

This is my latest addition to the crazy lamp collection and I'm in love with it! Just gotta get some paint on this baby and find a new shade, because the one currently on there is just temporary. My problem is that I'm just so dang indecisive about everything, so I need to decide on paint colors for the several lamps that I am painting, plus decide on fabrics for the lampshades for each! So overwhelming because there are literally infinite options, but I will be posting pictures of all my lamp makeovers in the coming weeks! Below I have a few lamps with fabric shades for a little inspiration.
