From Drab to Fab!

This is the chandelier in the eat-in area of our kitchen. I redid some cheap dollar store shades with scrapbook paper, seam binding and more of that eyelash trim I love so much!

I was inspired after seeing how my friend Jennifer over at This Is The Day had decorated her shades. I decided to do all five of them in different papers, too. (Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer!)

These shades are actually on their second makeover because I had already covered them with fabric and ball fringe to match the decor when I lived at my other house. (We just moved to this house a month ago.) But I decided I wanted a different look so I removed the fabric/trim and decided to try the scrapbook paper this time around, which I like a lot better!

Another great thing is that I got the scrapbook paper 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby. I love it when I am able to redo something really cheaply :)

Thanks for looking!


  1. That is just the neatest idea! Hobby Lobby is also one of my favorite places to visit. Often! ;0)
    Can't wait to see what else you are doing with your new home.

  2. Love it Michelle!!

    We dont have a hobby lobby store in Canada :(
