light choices

 my gold beauty

Recently I picked up this gold beauty at my local thrift shop for $15.  After a bit of a polish and new shade it'll look great.  Not bad I think, considering this beauty retails for a whopping $519.  They look pretty close right?

Since my purchase I have been on the hunt for the perfect shade.  Lately I am leaning towards a black shade although I have not been able to locate a black shade except at Target, but it's not the right fit.  Any suggestions?  I might take the original shade, remove the accordion looking cover and then with what's left over, glue on some black fabric with trim.

Or I might go with one of these other shades.  I love the burlap look as well as the scroll shade. Decisions, decisions. 
What would you do?

  1. I think it would look great with the burlap!

  2. I love the one at the bottom right - I would write one of my favourite poems on some calico and use that with the old frame.

  3. What a great find. Have you looked at for shades? They have a great selection. I think all of the ones you posted would be great too!
