Takin', Fakin' & Makin' : Bold Lampshade

TGIF!! Why is it that a short holiday week seems to last the longest?? Maybe it is the beautiful weather and the sun calling my name, but all I can say is I can't wait for 5pm :) 

I am in the process of trying to add some life to the matching clear lamps that are on the dresser in my bedroom, and I thought that this week's TFM would be a great way to gather some inspiration for the direction that I could go.

There are sooooo many adorable fabric covered lampshades out there at such a wide array of prices- the choices are endless. But the trouble I have is finding the exact one that goes with my color pallet or vibe of the room. I have spotted shades ranging from $10-150 depending on the fabric and quality, but all are great additions to a room in need of a pop of color. Plus, if you have a lamp base that just needs a new identity then swap a blah shade for something fun!

Of course, I am all about the DIYed version since it means the fabric choices are unlimited, but for those of you that don't have the crafty bug then these sources have great options for you.
