I have two beige shantung lampshades. In excellent shape but wrong color for my new decor. Can I paint them a chalk white? Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Hello, Judy! Yes, you can paint them! I have seen many excellent color makeovers across blogland and they hold up well too! They best recommendation I have seen is to go at it lightly creating light coats so that it finishes evenly and smoothly. Please post how yours turns out!
