Tutti Frutti Lampshade Made Out Of A Vintage Tablecloth

Retro Lamps Shades Made From Vintage Tablecloths
It seems that I keep finding more and more uses for vintage tablecloth cutters. One of my favorite sellers on is Sassy Shades. This gal creates lamp shades out of vintage barkcloth, doilies, runners, tea towels, remnants and old tablecloths.

Fruits And Flowers For Your Kitchen

Look at this wonderful lamp shade, Sassy is calling "Tutti Frutti". Here is how she describes her shade: " It was handmade from a vintage tablecloth. The back ground is white, with an array of fruit and flowers in vibrant colors of green, yellow, blue, pink, and a rosy red. It would be very darling with your cottage or shabby chic decor as well as fun accessory for the kitchen!"


Square Frame (4 panel) measuring:
Top 3"
Bottom 5-1/2"
Height 6"

The inside frame has been hand wrapped in grosgrain ribbon with the outside trimmed in the same fabric. This lampshade has a clip for a regular size light bulb.
