{Coffee Filter Lampshade}

2 hours, 200 filters, and 3 burns later I have this HUGE frilly fabulous lampshade.  I asked my husband if he liked it, and his response was 'not really.'  I think he thought I bought it and that point I didn't care to clear the air and tell him that I just spent 2 hours on this thing!!  The funny thing is is that he never would have noticed.  Men.

 What really matters is that I like it, and I do.  It is kind of huge though. 

As for gaining the motivation to do 'his lamp' I'm not there yet.  That was a bugger! (He'd probably notice then.  He'd be like, 'what's all this stuff all over my lamp?')  I'm laughing just thinking about it.

I got the approval of my step daughter though.  She thought it was 'cool' and for that I am happy. 


  1. I love it! It's so fun! My hubby's reply is usually a mix between 'mmhmm' and 'yeah.' It's like his own made up "approval" word! Haha - our men are so funny!

  2. Wow!! It looks like a $100 lampshade! I love the look, I've always wanted to try it, and my guy would of said the same thing.

  3. Love it! Its worth the time. I have to try that! I have two lamps that are just aching to be beautified.

  4. this is incredible! it looks like a lampshade out of anthropologie!
