Restored Small Drum Vintage Contemporary Lampshade.  The new cover is Ivory Charmeuse Silk with coordinatingIvory Chennile trim.  Cleaned wire; Replaced Cover;  Line & New Trim

This vintage shade cover was stapled.  I have seen this many times and cannot imagine actually getting a clean finish stapling the material onto the frame!   I am just guessing, but I believe the stapling technique to be a manufacturers technique in the 50’s.  That is my guess.

The liner was removed years prior.  Most likely due to dry rot from lighting.  The liners shred and turn to dust.  It is the best idea to remove the liners when they get brittle.  It really can be a hazardous situation if not removed.

The cover fabric was also getting brittle and started to tear.  It only takes slight, next to nothing, pressure to split the fabric when it gets this weak.

The original trim was a ruffled fabric woven in with a braid trim.  The fabric in the trim was dry rotted as well.  I could not reuse the trim.

I used Ivory Charmeuse Silk for the new cover.  The Charmeuse Silk is a beautiful, elegant, rich finish.  The silk cover does not absorb dust and dirt making it easy to maintain.  It only takes a soft cloth to brush the dust off.  The fabric ages with grace!

Since I was not able to restore the vintage trim, I used a Chenille ivory trim on the restored shade.  It was a perfect match.  The trim complimented the cover fabric.

And you, a young man, turns out to be impudent, mother laughed. Just kidding. I liked it too, Kolya reassured her. The lovers cooed sweetly, not even thinking about dressing. Kolya poured the remaining wine into glasses, and they slowly drank it.

In the evening I washed myself with scented soap, sprinkled myself with perfume, and thought for a long time what to wear. At first I tried to fit into a tight evening dress, but my brother saw all my dresses, and he bought most of them. So it was necessary to wear something new that he had not yet seen.

And I put on the peignoir that I bought with my last paycheck.

Well, in short, drain the girl out of him, and we have the costumes ready. Marina calmly nodded her head and escorted me into the room. For the next hour and a half, make-up artists conjured at home, and I carefully watched and remembered.

Now discussing:

If you are embarrassed, turn away. Or disappear. Apparently, if it was embarrassing, then not to the extent that Verka assumed.
