How to Repair a Dented Lamp Shade




Have a favorite lamp and the shade is dented? Here are 2 sure fire ways to restore the shape without the damage.
I have found these to work well though it does not leave the shade perfect it will take out the dent.

^_^:
1го Try this if there is a small dent in the lamp shade. Hold an Iron up as close to the lamp shade as you can without touching it. Make sure to have the iron on steam. Press the steam button 3 or 4 times, this should be enough heat to make the fabric soft enough to pop the dent out. Though the dent will be gone a small crease could still be visible.

^_^:
2го Try this method if there is a larger dent in the lamp shade. Fill a spray bottle with water then spray the dented area 2 or 3 times do not over soak the lamp shade. Wet it just enough to soften the fabric.

^_^:
3го Once the fabric is damp take a blow dryer to the area with the dent this should heat up the area enough to pop out the dent. Though the dent will be gone a small crease could still be visible.

^_^:

*It is best not to force the dent out this could cause even more damage to the shade.
*Do not over wet the shade when spraying it with water.
*Do not touch the shade with the iron this could burn the shade.
