Painted Lampshade DIY
I have been admiring these lampshades from Room & Board for some time. They are a bit pricy. So, I was inspired to paint my own. Using a plain linen lampshade from Pottery Barn and a little Benjamin Moore sample paint, I was able to create a lampshade that matches my living room, without breaking the bank. First, I lightly drew some leaves onto the lampshade. I wanted the paint to be even all around so, I needed a base before painting. At first I thought that I only wanted tone on tone, but the lampshade really had no punch. So I added a second and third color. No, it is not Room & Board, but I am happy with the outcome and the price.
