Up-cycled lamp shade and glass bottle

I've had this bedside lamp for many years, so it was getting a bit tired and I've been meaning to do something to it for quite a while now. I didn't want to paint the base, as I love the dark wood, but I did want to spruce up the shade a bit. This weekend I finally got around to it. Made a little "skirt" and flower with chiffon and added a bit of trim. Seems I'm going all girlie in my old age! haha I'm very happy with how it turned out!

I made the flower using this tutorial from Love Maegen: Chiffon flower

This is how it looked before

And after

While I was at it, I thought I might as well prettify this
 glass bottle I bought ... 22 years ago! 
I just added a bit of ribbon, lace, charms and flowers.

A pretty pink and romantic corner in my bedroom. 
The lamp now gives a lovely soft, rosy glow to the room. 
Love it!
