RV Remodel: a lampshade redo

RV Remodel: a lampshade redo


Buying a 14-year-old RV means that you’re going to be redoing a lot of stuff.  I started with the bedroom lampshades.  They were blah and dirty.  I picked up a couple of self-adhesive lampshades and covered them in turquoise tone-on-tone scrolly print fabric I’d bought to use in various spots throughout the rig.  The lampshades come with templates, so it’s pretty easy to cut the fabric to size and then smooth it onto the shade.  I used fabric glue to attach funky apple green trim, which was embellished with multi colored beads, to the top and bottom of each shade. Easy peasy!

A tip: Make sure the lampshade matches the light bulb fitting of your lights.
