DIY Upholstered Lamp Shade

I was inspired by two different blogs for this DIY project: YoungHouseLove as well as one I found on pinterest called ALittleGlassBox.

Here's what I was going for, only I used burlap instead of linen.

I chose to use this tiny lamp that I bought for 2 dollars at a yard sale. 
First I measured the width and length of the lamp shade and cut out a piece of burlap 4 inches longer and wider.

I pulled it tight around the lamp shade so i had it exactly how i wanted it to fit and then glued on one side with a hot glue gun.

Next I pinned the other side in place and trimmed off the excess burlap so that it was about 1.5 inches over the top and bottom of the shade.

Then I folded the burlap down twice around the edges so that the raw edge wasn't exposed and glued it down in small 1 inch increments so the glue wouldn't dry before I got it down. I had to cut a small slit when I came across the metal rods that attach to the light bulb. 

I did this around the bottom as well. As you can see the lamp shade did not come off the lamp, so that was a little difficult to work around.

Before I got to the very end of gluing down the top and bottom edges, I folded down the other end of the verticle edge as straight as possible, which ended up not being too straight, and glued this down.

Then I glued down the rest of the top and bottom.

Next I had my friend, who has better hand writing than me, write a poem around the lamp shade with a sharpie. We quickly discovered how hard it is to write on burlap, so it's a little bit hard to read, but I like  the over all effect.

Navy Blue and White Skeleton Key Lumbar Pillow

Here is one of my favorite designs so far, the skeleton key pillow. I'm going to have trouble letting it go because I want it for myself! In some of these pictures it looks like it is black, but I promise you it is really navy blue. It is also larger than all of my other lumbar pillows. I wanted it to be big enough to be able to sit alone in the center of the couch (as seen in the picture). The dimensions are 14''x28'' (normally I make them 12''x 20'').

And Here it is looking quite perfect on our couch.

And on our chair...

And the bed...

And on the bed with a new pillow arrangement...

Personalized Painted Latice Pillow

I made this pillow for a friend who is getting married. I made it extra large so it could make a nice center decorative pillow on a bed, or it would also be nice just standing alone on a comfy chair. The pillow is all hand painted. If you would prefer the pillow in a color other than green please let me know and I can check and see if they have it at the store.

Red and Black Personalized Lumbar Name Pillow

I made this pillow for a friend's birthday present, as you can probably tell, she loves red and black. Instead of a name you could also get your initials, a fun saying, a special date, or anything else you'd like. Other font options are available as well.

Yellow and Green Personalized Pillow

This pillow was also made for a baby gift for a baby shower my mom is going to, however it does not have to be limited to babies. You could also get a special date printed on it, or perhaps your initials, basically anything that can fit in that little white rectangle! You may also notice it matches the green and yellow onesie I made (could make a great combo gift!).
