Ruffles, Ruffles, and more Ruffles...

Hi All! I hope everybody had a wonderful 4th of July.  We had a wonderful weekend filled with family, fun, fireworks, Chuck E Cheese, and an amusement Park. My kiddos were in heaven!

Anyhow, giving the busy weekend we had I did not finish the kitchen again.  And now, I think it's going to be a little longer because there are a few more projects to complete before I do the reveal so thank you for being patient.              

This morning I turned a plain and boring white lamp shade in to a ruffled beauty.  I bought this trim at Wal-Mart for around 1.00 a yard. It is the trim that is usually used on quilts. It did take about 11 yards of it to complete one shade.  I actually have a matching shade that I need to do but I ran out of the trim.  I am really happy with the way it came out. What do you think?

Linking up with Saavy Southern Style.
