DIY - ribbon-wrapped lampshade

every time i am using our desktop computer, this lamp is literally staring down at me. it sits on top of the cpu & serves as our main light in the living room. everyone will agree with me that it is very plain & the base design is outdated. it sure needs a quick fix.
i got my glue gun & some grosgrain ribbon [$1 for 5 yards at walmart]. and after 5 minutes, i was done!
this is a work in progress. i will spray paint the lamp base this coming summer [& maybe redecorate the shade again]. i have yet to decide on the color - white, black or metallic silver. in the meantime, i have six months to find ideas or inspirations for this project. good luck to me! =)
