I am the first to admit that I am not the best home repair person in the world. When something breaks, it usually takes me a while to figure out how to make the repairs or to break down and hire someone to make the repairs for me. When my dishwasher was leaking, I made the big mistake of not taking action immediately. Instead, I just stopped using it. I thought that not using it solved my problems, but it didn't. About three weeks later, I had to hire a repair contractor to fix all of the damage that the dishwasher had caused. Find out about water damage on my blog.
Lamp shades are made from fragile material and can be easily crushed. Once a lamp shade is broken, you have two choices. You can either pay for professional lamp repair, or you can fix the shade yourself. DIY lamp shade replacement involves removing the original lamp shade from the rings and replacing it with fresh material. If you're interested in completing a project like this, these tips will help.
In this procedure, you'll make a poster board replacement for the original lamp shade. Once the poster board has been cut to the right shape and glued to the lamp shade rings with hot glue, you'll cover the poster board with the decorative fabric of your choice. Lighter fabric like loose canvas or burlap may be preferable over dark fabric, because dark fabric will darken the room. Of course, it's your choice.
That's it! Of course, this solution to a crushed lamp shade involves destroying the old lamp shade. If the old lamp shade is something you happen to be attached to, you could be better off seeking lamp repair service instead.
