Trimming the shade can be as elaborate as you wish. You can start with a simple trim glued on the bottom or top edge or fill in the entire shade with trims in stripes, spokes, or random patterns.
And even simpler way to revive an old lampshade is to drape a scarf or piece of fabric over it. Do make absolutely sure that the fabric is at least 3 inches away from the bulb, or you could start a fire. Never cover halogen lamps with fabric, because these lights burn extremely hot and have caused enough deaths for a product recall in the US.
