Item details

Do you have a lampshade with a great size and silhouette, but it’s seen better days? Perhaps the color is outdated or it just doesn’t match your decor anymore. You don’t need to buy an entirely new lampshade - just replace the styrene liner and cover it with a new fabric. Our pre-cut styrene sheets are the ideal base material for a lampshade - super durable + sturdy. With a new sheet of styrene you can replace a yellowed, damaged, or torn shade with some new modern fabric and have an updated lamp in just a couple of hours.

****************************** KEY FEATURES ******************************

* ADHESIVE STYRENE FOR MAKING LAMPSHADES - Styrene is the plastic material used for making high-quality lampshades. Now you can make your own lamp shade with this self-adhesive styrene sheet. Reveal the adhesive backing on the styrene by peeling back a release liner, then simply apply fabric or paper to the styrene for a professional designer looking lampshade

* RESTORE OLD LAMP SHADES - Salvage old and yellowing lampshades by replacing the styrene. Use the top & bottom rings from an old shade, or buy new lampshade rings in the dimensions you want

* MATCH YOUR STYLE PERFECTLY - Light to medium weight cotton fabric works best, but you can use almost any other fabric with some extra effort. Open a whole world of colors, patterns, and textures by covering your lamp shade with new fabric and embellishments

* PRE-CUT AND EASY TO MEASURE - Determine the length of styrene you need for your project by multiplying the desired diameter by pi (3.14) and adding 1 inch

* MULTIPLE SIZE OPTIONS - Available in multiple sizes, including 5 yard lengths for multiple lamp refurbishing projects. It can also be cut down to achieve your desired size

****************************** WHAT'S INCLUDED? ******************************

You’ll receive one sheet of styrene in the height and width of your choice. Styrene is white in color, but thin enough to let a lot of diffused light shine through the lamp shade. The sheet has a removable release liner which is peeled off to expose a self-adhesive side of the styrene. Apply your fabric or paper to the adhesive side of the styrene for a smooth, professional look.

******************** HOW MUCH STYRENE DO YOU NEED? ********************

For drum or cylinder-shaped shades, determine the length of styrene you need for your project by multiplying the desired diameter by pi (3.14) and adding 1 inch. For example, if the D of your old lamp shade is 10 inches, you’ll need a piece of styrene at least 32 inches wide (10 x 3.14 + 1).

For cone or tapered shades, you’ll need to trace an arc using the old shade to determine the length and height of styrene material you need.

Our 5’ lengths are perfect if you want to make several lampshades for your home or for friends!

******************* WHY MAKE YOUR OWN LAMPSHADE? *******************

Designer lamp shades can cost you into the hundreds of dollars. With this basic piece of styrene, you’ll be able to make a beautiful, quality lampshade that matches your decor for a fraction of the cost. We all have different taste - don’t settle for a pre-made generic lamp shade. Make a lamp you love!
