Go For A Pattern
One of the easiest ways to makeover an old lamp is to ditch the boring, white shade and go for something a bit more interesting like the pattern below. DIYers should use strips of painters tape to create a stencil on the lamp lamp shade. Once you’ve finished taping the stencil, go over the shade with a few coats of your desired shade of spray paint. Just like in the previous project, make sure things are fully dry before re-coating. I love this cute chevron pattern and I’m dreaming about doing something similar to a lamp in my home.
