One of our favorite things in life, besides crafting lamps, is seeing what our creative customers have been up to. And they never cease to amaze us. As much as we try to come up with different ideas to inspire them in their DIY projects, it is actually them who show us there are countless applications to our products in their lamp makeovers. We are deeply grateful and equally happy to see that we play a small part in helping crafters give their lamps new life.

In today’s #customerfeature, we are showcasing Lenore’s new lampshades. She used our adhesive styrene to make panel lampshades for her pair of antique porcelain table lamps and put them up for sale. We’re loving how these turned out.


“I made these lampshades from your styrene for my antique mall and they sold immediately! Thank you!!”

Project Materials:


Lenore’s lampshades combined a clean and elegant look thanks to the neutral color of the burlap and the dynamic, strong red of the floral fabric. Plus, she chose a panel frame for her lampshades for a classy look that would match her porcelain bases.

While panel style lampshade frames come in many shapes and sizes, fortunately, Lenore’s frames had straight sides (no curves) which made it easy to work with adhesive styrene. Well, not as easy as a DIY drumshade, but close enough. You can learn more about using adhesive styrene with panel lampshades here.
