Lamp Shade Painting

Seriously...did you know you could do this!?!  Paint a lamp shade? Who knew!

As you may know I've been in the process of decorating Sophia's new bedroom. I have a lamp shade from her old room that is green and white and just does not match the new color scheme. So while looking at it  (light bulb) I thought paint it! It was worth the try. Besides I bought it from Goodwill 2-3 years ago for I think $2.

Here is the shade before:

                              

The process was super simple! I started by picking at the end of the ric-rack and it just peeled right off. 


Then I used masking tape to mask off the area which was going to be painted.


I used Americana Razzle Berry Acrylic Paint and a sponge brush and went to town painting it.



Ta-Da!!!
