One day last week I found myself staring at my plain boring white lampshades in my living room. I had bought them with the idea of stenciling them... but since I have stenciled my entry way, and it is a perfect sight line from these shades to the entry, that wouldn't work. After looking at a few pre made lampshades I was feeling creative.
I originally thought I would create an ombre effect with gold paint, but I only had one shade of gold paint that I liked so I moved on to plan B. I whipped out my good old trustee spray paint can and sprayed away. I used some tape to give me a reference point... but honestly I didn't need it and probably would not use it next time. I just kept spraying evenly until I got about 1" away from the blue line. Then I just lightly sprayed here and there to create the soaked in dyed effect.
A simple DIY that took about 10 minutes! I think it was the perfect addition to the shades. A pop of gold and texture, but not over powered by pattern!
Next week I have a fun hack for that mirror I plan to share!
