Revamping of an old shade

My daughter, Stephanie, bought the neatest lamp shade this week. It is trimmed with braid and has applique flowers on it and in rich burgundy colors...it looks really sharp. I picked up her discarded shade and said.."can I have this?" ( Anyone that knows me, knows I never throw things away too easily..so I brought it home.) I found this braid at WalMarts for 3.97. At first, I thought it may be too gaudy looking, but now that it is finished.I think I like it. (Bob didn't growl at it ..so i guess it is a keeper .LOL)
