Hey don't throw out those old shades!!
I really like the base of this lamp, it lights up too.
(In the first pic you can see it better).
find and old shade, make sure your shade has good bones, you need ones that have wire attached to the top and bottom of the shade, that way when you take off the shade your left with a solid frame.
when buying ribbon, you will need ALOT of it, so check the price of it first depending on how much you want your shade to cost you.
The white ribbon shade above took 72 to 78 yards of ribbon,
the shade in this tutorial took 96 yards of ribbon.
