I had this rooster lamp that I love but it had a red and white checkered lamp shade which used to match my family room. I changed the family room over to a blue, tan and white theme so, that meant the lamp had to go. I really did not want to get rid of the lamp and knew that finding a lamp shade could take a long time, so I improvised. I took a lace runner ( I collect them) and wrapped it around the shade and pinned it in the back. NO MONEY AND SO FAST!
