Inspiration: Crochet-Covered Lampshades

Curiosites-en-Tissu

I have a sympathetic heart for items that are ignored or cast away. There's always a section of things at your local thrift store that never really sell. You see them every time you venture in and they almost sigh with exasperation. Old lampshades without a lamp are just such an item. Well add some color and put those bad boys to use, it's their time to shine!

These lampshades were found in a beautiful set up on Curiosites-en-Tissu, a French blog who is showcasing the work and displays of a local boutique. The arrangement of all sorts of distressed, country chic items are in place, but our favorite was this cluster of seemingly crocheted lampshades.

Old lampshades could easily be purchased and covered with old sweaters in whatever color suits your nursery or space. You could choose to add pendant lights inside or simply leave them empty as non-functional decor. Check out more looks from this boutique at Curiosites-en-Tissu.
