This lampshade project was featured in the book Thriftychic by Liz Bauwens and Alexandra Campbell. It is a great way to use a button collection. I thought I had a lot of buttons, but this lampshade took over 300 buttons. It is composed of mostly vintage buttons, but I ended up buying a few new ones too.
I really do like the uniqueness of this lampshade.
You can buy lampshade frames on-line at the Lamp Shade Shop. I used a lamp shade that I had and just removed the existing fabric.
There are several other projects in this book that I plan on doing including a painted display cabinet.
