Thrift find.... lamp shade

So, I'm taking a break from my multiple projects to blog. Partly because I'm tired and excited to share:) I found an amazing lamp (picture to come) at a thrift stop for my family room redo so I needed a cool shade. Thankfully, I looked up in another thrift store because all his lamp shades were on a shelf collecting dust. I spotted this beauty! Love the lines! The picture does a poor job showing it's current fabric which is a minty light green with small cream dots. It's nice the way it is but it doesn't match what I have going on in my room.

Deconstructing the shade

The new fabric and trim is a silk like material with details gold thread running through it. It has a different color tone when you look at it from varying angles. It will be the perfect accent of silvery blue I'm looking for. Now off to finish my kitchen valence. Lowe's here I come:)
