First, I laid out a background color. I used an acrylic paint in red and I covered the plain canvas shade. Let that dry and then your ready to continue!
Red White & Blue Lampshade Makeover
This old beige canvas lamp shade was just screaming out for some attention and a bit more color I decided to get on it! I love being able to give a plain Jane lamp shade a new life with some paint and creativity. It's low cost and easy to do and gives your lamp more color and design.
Next it’s time to get creative with a white acrylic paint pen. I draw flowers in various positions on shade with even spaces between designs.
I keep going and then add accents dots and outlines in blue paint pen. You can really take your creativity as far as you'd like, experiment with color and shapes, and just have fun.
A few more flourishes and nearly done.
I’m really pleased with this transformation!
It looks great! I also gave the lamp stand a sweet little makeover, go take a look at my post- http://www.hometalk.com/41762130/sweet-whimsi...
