Update a lampshade with paint

I though I would share this tip with you. When decorating Daniel's room recently I realised that the beige lampshade just wasn't going to cut it.

Rather than buy a new one, I simply painted the old one! I mixed some acrylic paint until it was the right shade, then watered it down slightly. Then I just painted it right onto the lampshade and let it dry.

Voila, a whole new look!

  2. I won't laugh! I save supplement containers as they are perfect for mixing small batches of paint in.
