the gant blankets are rough, especially with all the pink, but i love the overall look. i have seersucker sheets (sounds weird i know, but with a high thread count they're heaven) so an argyle pillow might be over the top but something to definitely keep in mind for a future room. also, magbot, i'm totally stealing your navy and camel color combination; why do i never think to use my favorite colors to wear in my decor?

the wrinkles in mod podge are the worst. i just use a ruler to smooth them out while they're still wet, but it's sort of a toss up. for this project though i'd consider a spray adhesive. i use it for all sorts of thing and it doesn't wrinkle, plus i know 3M makes one that isn't permanent so it might make removal easier for the future owner (or you if you decide you don't like it)

I've got a couple of these lights in my apartment (what can I say, I'm in college and they're cheap) and two of them cover overhead light "fixtures" that are just bare bulbs. If the bulbs are sideways I would just hang the shade right off them, or if they're upright, attach the metal hanger above the bulb to one side and use the whole thing. Not sure how costco makes them, the ones from Urban Outfitters use a metal wire rectangle to hold them open. If you really want to cut it in half I think you'd have to cut vertically slightly offcenter to maintain the wire part that keeps it together. The top and bottom of the wire part could easily be attached the wall with just about anything, they weigh absolutely nothing.
