There is nothing wrong with this lampshade, nothing at all. It's actually really beautiful. However, I decided for the space it's in, it needed to be a different and lighter color. I'm getting tired of these dark tones and want to lighten things up a bit in my home. So without spending too much (my husband is a lucky man) I gave it a transformation on a budget.
It's a metal shade so of course spray paint is the ultimate solution.
I sprayed it a nice creamy white satin. I painted the entire inside of it too. It use to be gold inside and didn't put out much light. Now it's all fresh and puts out a LOT of light.
Quick change for under $5.00. I think it will look even better when I spray it with a high gloss polyurethane.
I'm happy and had a great decorating therapy session! My hands are covered in paint but I needed a manicure anyway! I got ahead of myself and didn't use those handy throw away gloves?
Need a quick change and a "crafty" therapy session? What can you spray paint today?
How about a silver shade for Christmas? Metallic is all the rage right now!
