I have some old red Moroccan lamps similar to this image that are getting a little worse for wear. Over the years they have accumulated dust, rips, tears, stains and have taken an overall beating. While the metal holding the lamp shades in place is still perfectly usable, the material has definitely seen better days. However, because they are such an odd design, I am having a difficult time coming up with something crafty to do with them.
Can anyone suggest a quick, cheap fix for these Moroccan lamps? I’m not nearly as crafty as I would like to be and the silk surrounding the shades is so dry and brittle it tears easily if you attempt to clean it. I would however, like to maintain a Moroccan feel to them.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! -Astellus
