thrifty find: burlap lamp shades

Right now I am loving the natural fiber of burlap -- and apparently so is Pottery Barn and the rest of the world!  :D  
While flipping through my PB catalog for design inspiration I was completely drawn to their new burlap lampshades. 
But sigh, I cannot pay $70 for a lampshade.

This is when I turn to Target, who has a similar product {okay, so not as luxe} for only $19.  

So I snagged the large version to replace the broken shade on the Eiffel Tower lamp in our living room.

Of course, Hubby still thought $19 was expensive "for a lampshade."  



  1. oooh pretty! I might have to make a Target trip. I actually like the jute trim too!! Nice.
    your home looks pretty!

  2. You did great! It really looks good. You have a great eye for design.

    I am assuming that Hubby probably never bought a lamp shade in his life and wouldn't know what a good price for it was :-)


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
