I have had an incredibly ugly hanging light fixture over the table in the dining room for years--mostly because I could not find a replacement that I liked enough to bother with changing it. Now it is going to change--or maybe in a week or two when things slow down and I can get my son to help me. Thanks.

It is great to know that this video can be of help to you. Good luck with reinstalling your lampshade. This lampshade is reasonably easy to make and the result is terrific.

I have even picked out the paper I plan to use--it is moderately sturdy (durability) but not too terribly thick (glow-ability)
