What to do?

My dear friend Lena gave me this lamp! She came from Italy many years ago and this lamp was a gift to her from a friend. She's getting older and gave this lamp to me. It's such a treasure! She told me the lamp shade came along later. She said I could change the shade but I like it. I removed the trim and wanted to replace it. The only problem is......when ripping the trim off....this is what happened......
I thought I may want to take some vintage sheets of music and cover the shade but, on the other hand I do like the shade. I still want to use the trim but, I'm just at a loss as what to do.

I need to cover the spots where the paper is missing. Any suggestions on how to fix my problem????


  1. Hmmm...I think big fringy trim might solve the problem. Glad to see you around again :)

  2. What about a smaller trim that matches the color of the trim at the bottom? Good luck, it looks better already.
