I LOVE vintage! Rusty, lacy, jewels, chippy paint etc. I’m always looking for creative ways to store my art supplies. A while back, I had the pleasure of taking a soldering class from Terri Brush at the lovely Lorraine Lewis’ house in Layton, UT. While at Lorraine's house, a bunch of us ladies went to a darling store called Just A Bed Of Roses. I bought this Rusty stand that works great for storing old linens and lace.
I also love the allure of vintage bowls with laces spilling over the brim!Just A Bed Of Roses since I rarely get up north. She kindly obliged. While I was there I found this darling vintage lamp shade base.
Here’s how I did it-
If your shade will fit under the presser foot of your machine you can just fold over your lace on the under side and stitch it together. If your shade wont fit under your foot then you’ll have to stitch it by hand. Just pick various scraps of lace, trims, beads, old keys, millinery flowers and either stitch, glue gun, or wire them on, and this is what you end up with for a finished project.
