Next I tore some white muslin material into approximately 1" x 6" strips and tied three each onto each spine
To the bottom edge I hot glued some vintage trim that I purchased a few months ago. I was short by about a 1/2" but with the shade adjusted just so....the "bald spot" is hidden in the back!
Lastly....I sprayed the lamp base a flat white and "voila"! my floor lamp is back in my good graces! :)
