Am I the only person whose lampshades are falling apart?
I know that the ones with plastic inside don't last, so I bought many with full metal frames, which have a plasticized material wrapped in a huge series of loops around it. They lasted 20 years. Unfortunately, several now look like this.
I experimented with a little one, and wrapped it with wide lace. It looks pretty good, but you can still sort of see the bulb through the lace. I really need fabric that comes in a strip about 2" wide with non-fray edges. Does anyone know where I can get that?
I'm a little afraid to try to stitch fancy lampshade covers, with layers of fabric inside and out stitched together at each metal upright (although I have quite a few of those, and they are holding up splendidly). I'm hopeful someone can help!
