Funeral Home Drum Lampshades

They are all done! All eight drum lampshades have been handmade using shantung fabric and trim. These are not lined as they are hardbacked shades. The customer wanted more light in the room than the old shades were providing and these drum lampshades did the trick. I didn't take a close up of the fabric and should have.


The original order was going to be 16 drum lampshades; however, we didn't feel that drums would look good on the lamps below. So instead we ordered lined, shantung lampshades. These were made in the USA.

What's Up?

My blog posts seem to be missing or it's taking a long time for them to come up. I wonder what's up with that? I'm still having trouble with the text in the header too. I wonder if Wordpress is better?

I've been busy remaking lampshades for customers in PA and FL. All three were drum style lampshades. They came to me because they couldn't find replacement shades in the stores. That's my niche...to replace lampshades by remaking them using the original frames. Remaking shades gives the lamp a new look and saves the landfills.
