Seagrass Lampshade

What do you get when you combine a Wal-mart lampshade with a woven placemat? A Ballard look-a-like seagrass shade a la Tammy from A Walk in the Countryside! Tammy pulled off the transformation by first unraveling the placemat and then hot gluing it around the shade for some instant beautification and texture. I love this simple update for an old or plain lampshade!

Tammy was inspired by the Tasseau Table Lamp with seagrass shade from Ballard Designs.

  1. Thanks for sharing! What a great idea!

    • It makes you look at a woven placement in a whole new light and start thinking about what else you could wrap in it! Lol 😉
