Make Your Own Fabric Lamp Shades

Make your own drum shades.

Three staples to the hand, two pairs of paint-stained pants and one handful of hair sticky with hot glue. Your projects are more DOA than DIY. 

Learn how to save face with tips from Texas design guru Amanda Brown, an expert in re-upholstery. On Monday, November 4, bring your favorite fabric to Bishop Arts craft studio Oil & Cotton where the cutie will teach you how to make your own drum shades. Amanda has been featured in The New York Times and Design Sponge and you may have seen her upcycled furniture in cool spots like Austin's Hotel Saint Cecilia.

Finally, a new creative outlet.

Can't make the class? Hit Oil & Cotton for a signing of Amanda's new book, Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design, on Monday, November 4, from 5 - 7 p.m.
