A while back, I found this glass bubble lamp for my front entry at Home Goods for a steal, but I wasn't crazy about the shade that came with it. It just blended right into the wall. I considered buying a new shade, but then I was so inspired by Courtney's idea for her lamp shade. Using some black one inch ribbon that I already had, and adding it to the top and bottom using double sided tape, I now have a lamp shade that I am happy with. So much better and it didn't cost me anything - YAY!
