Painted Lampshade

Quick & Easy Little Way To Spruce Up A Plain Lampshade...

Hope your all having a great September! Its going by SO fast!! I just wanted to share a quick little project I did with y'all! 
Ive been looking for that perfect little lamp for my hallway & of course couldn't find the exact fit, so I found this little lampshade at Target that I really liked, but it was just plain white. My hall is a light color so I didnt want it to blend in & since I've kinda got a "striped" theme going on I thought it would be cute to paint a stripe on the lampshade! 
So... Here's the lampshade I bought...

 So all I did was apply tape (I used 2" tape) I didnt measure or anything I just used the little edge piece on the shade as my guide.

Slap some paint on there, I only did 3 sides, let it dry then did the last side & thats it! Quick, Easy, and for Cheap!! 
Its just the size I was looking for :) 

Hope you all enjoyed! Now on to the next post (I got alot of catching up to do)

  1. Looks fabulous, Kelly; gonna try some painting on fabric soon myself. Love the shape of your shade too; have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you Patty! It was very easy, Im going to do my roman shade in the kitchen next- kinda dreading that one I don't think It'll be as easy as the lampshade!! Take Care :)
