I've always been so curious about how to update a lamp shade, especially since I have a DIY project stowed away that requires such such a trick. Here Pinecone Camp show us how, without using toxic spray adhesive which is usually used, to re-cover a white lampshade to give it new life!

Without turning to the toxins of spray glue, Pinecone Camp sews what is mostly a "slipcover" for her white lampshade, turning it into a colorfully-patterned accent. Check out the full Friday DIY.

But I wonder, would this work for a shade that's already patterned? Or would the pattern show through once the lamp is lit? Thoughts?
