cover for ikea lamp

i bought this lamp, the dunker, from ikea & quite liked it, except for the fact that it was rather plain & looked kind of stark white sitting there next to the couch .. so i covered it. i got the fabric, one of the annabella hemmed fabric range, also from ikea.

 

i used the same technique they used for the plain cover with the top piece shaped, then having it pulled tight underneath with velcro.

 

initally i was thinking i'd cover the whole thing, but when i draped the hemmed fabric over it as it was, just to see if it was going to work, i realised it looked quite nice with the sides being uncovered. the bonus was that it was much easier to make since there were no sides needed.

 

i'm rather pleased with how well it turned out. :-)
