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. Kindra Boroff, a designer here at Plaid, created this one. This is an intermediate project that will take 2 or more hours to complete. If you are like me, I often have a hard time finding the exact type of lampshade I picture in my mind, well here is a solution. Create your own lampshade. Use this exact design, or use it as inspiration to create whatever you envision.
