I wish I had taken a picture of this swag lamp when I bought it. I got it at a yard sale for $1.00. It was probably from the 60s. The shade was cylindrical and stained and broken with cowboys riding horses.

I grabbed a different stained up white lampshade and decoupaged the tissue paper onto it. I then glued on the ribbon and beaded it all around. Also beaded the pull.

The very colorful image you see in the background I made with a found frame and some fabric with a coffee motif. The flower painting was done by my son Joe in the 5th grade.
