lampshade makeover

It's that time of the year again - time to empty my summerhouse of all soft furnishings to save them from becoming damp and mildewy.  I have made a start and brought a few things in (in between the many showers we have had recently) and noticed the shade on this little lamp had little brown spots all over it - I think it may be the start of mildew.  It wasn't all green and yukky so maybe I just caught it in time. 

Anyway, rather than buying a new lampshade I decided that I'd give it a makeover using my stash of coloured buttons. 

I'm really pleased with it.  Although it looks very amateurish (and something a child could do) during the day, at night the buttons light up and it looks really funky.
