I was looking at my miserable lamp that sits on my dresser the other day. Here it is. It's been with me for 6 years and it has faded from a topaz blue to a dull greyish blue. I got it at IKEA for around SG$16. It's still working, but I don't want to splurge on another lamp or go to IKEA to replace the lampshade.

|Lamp with a "new" lampshade at zero cost! When it's dusty, just take it off and throw it in the wash - no need for your duster! Woo hoo - makes the housework simpler :-)|
I actually made a cover out of a top that doesn't fit me around the waist (getting old!). It's very easy. All you need is your needle & thread (or sewing machine), scissors, elastic and fabric. The fabric used was a jersey type material. You can use cotton, but then you would have to iron it after each wash :-(
