During the spring season people begin spring-cleaning around their homes, and during the summer it is the perfect time to do some in house decorating. This summer in case you are looking for a way to brighten up your home, we’ve got a great project to show you today. This flowers and polka dot lampshade designed by Kindra Boroff makes the perfect addition to any room in your home.
Have you done any spring-cleaning yet? How about some spring decorating? Spring is a great time to clean up, and start fresh. Perhaps there is a room in your home you need to organize. Or you have been looking forward to adding new decorations to your room. Here is a project that can bring new life to any room in your home. A repurposed lampshade is a great spring project.

Use this exact design, or use it as inspiration to create whatever you envision.
