...world map lampshade...


...some map graphics, a little Mod Podge and black grosgrain and my plain white lampshade got a whole new look...

Here's how it went...
I downloaded these super-cool pdfs from The Graphics Fairy... they're from a 1915 Atlas...so awesome. I opened them up in PS Elements, removed the color and lightened them up and then printed them out on plain-old computer paper.

Mod-Podge'd 'em up...waited for 'em to dry & hot-glued the grosgrain to the top and bottom edges...easy-peasy lemon-squeezy.

Now, I wouldn't try to circumnavigate the globe using my lampshade...I did have to make some cuts in some strange places in order to get the maps to fit...and there is a possibility that now North America and Asia are sharing the same continent on my lamp...but it works for me...
