Kingfisher lampshade repair for a lovely lady called Kath from the Midlands

27/10/2017 0 Comment(s)


When we received Kath`s stunning Kingfisher design lampshade we quickly realised it was in an extremely fragile condition, one slight mistake could have cracked Kath`s lampshade beyond repair, Treading carefully and taking our time was the best way to approach this repair job.


We carefully removed the top metal ring that was falling off the lampshade, once removed, we cleaned the metal ring with a very gentle rub of wire wool to remove any residue ready to be glued back into place.


Before we attempted to glue the metal ring back into position we applied a double sided self adhesive tape all around the metal ring, this helped to hold it into position at the top of the lampshade while we put a new fabric tape around the top of the lampshade and around the metal ring.


Once this had been done for some extra security we applied a small amount of hot melt glue just underneath the metal ring, this would make sure that it does not fall off in the future.


We also mirrored this with the bottom metal fitting ring, then to finish the lampshade off we glued a beautiful dark green & cream mix rope braid around the top & bottom of the lampshade bringing the Kingfisher back to life again.


Feedback from Kath from the Midlands!


"I have long treasured a beautiful and unique lamp which belonged to my Grandma and which I remember from my childhood. Unfortunately it was very dilapidated by the time it arrived at mine, and I have spent years looking for some way of repairing it. Finally I stumbled on the lampshade repair service that Ian offers at Premier Lampshades. I emailed him pictures and he quickly told me how he could improve the lampshade and, when asked, even gave me careful instructions about how best to post it to him. I did so with a little trepidation but Ian always quickly replied my emails in a friendly and courteous manner, and so I knew it was in safe hands. I also liked the fact that he did not try to over improve and maybe damage the shade. Just enough was done, at a reasonable price, and it was safely couriered back to me. I am really thrilled with it. Thank you to Ian and I do not hesitate to recommend this company"
