Vintage Barkcloth Lampshades, fashioned from a grandmother's drapes! What fun can be had in reinventing and recycling!

by Lampshade Keepsakes

We felt like Maria outfitting the children of the von Trapp family while we fashioned these shades in our studio out of vintage drapes ! Humming "The Sound of Music" made the time spent a musical joy!

Barkcloth has a wonderful texture (like bark:) and the shades of gray, olive, pink and blue make a colorful statement that is still surprisingly neutral. The shades on our lamps should be part of our home's fashion statement and you'll be on your way with this nice set.

Trimmed with gray matching cotton grosgrain ribbon (American made) and self-trim that is carefully fashioned from the same drapery panels, these square shades measure 61/2 inches at the top, 11 1/2 at the bottom and are 11 inches in height. They are a washer style frame which means they fit on a lamp with a final and a harp, but we can send clip adapters if you (or your lamp) prefer that style of shade! Just let us know.

If you have a favorite suit, drapes, or piece of clothing from a loved one no longer being used, consider letting us turn it into a usable heirloom for you. Don't let Dad's suit, Mom's Sunday best or grown-up children's keepsakes languish in the attic! Keep them close to you every day as you light up your home with the lamp - and the memories.

Handcrafted in our studio in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia- -made in the USA--we cover the metal ribs of our shades so the inside is nicely finished; no metal ribs showing against the hardback interior.

Please ask questions before you buy as our shades are not returnable.

We will happily adjust the shipping if you purchase both shades. Price is for each shade.
