Unique Lampshade Creations

A great lamp and lampshade can really help to tie a room together! 

Lamps are the perfect room accessories to help add interest, 
texture, color, and of course light to our most personal home spaces.
They also can be a way to show off our own unique personalities.

Take a look at these unique lamp shade creations and you'll see what I mean!
