Love that shade, I think it's perfect for the shape of the base!

 

Lowes.....oh my, one of my favorite stores.

For the reveal-Cat Happy

It is VERY different than what some of you would have done.  

 

I already shared the new shade, which I spray painted in this color.

I have an aversion to brass, so I knew that I would have to change that.  I selected this pink for the base.

Once everything was dry, I thought the fish got lost, so I outlined them in different shades with Sharpie paint pens.

I just drew some freehand squiggles to add color on each of the fish.

 

The top of the shade is ribbon with a sequence of these vintage fish beads, that I got on Etsy.  I threaded the fish on a ribbon and glued the ribbon down.

The bottom of the shade is fabric, which I stitched together wrong sided and turned it inside out to make a sort of binding.  I glued that to the bottom.
