How do I paint pleated shades?

Has anyone painted Hunter Douglas honeycomb pleated shades? I need to reduce glare factor.

    I think that would make them not work as well to get good coverage. Definitely void all warrenties, I know they are expensive to replace. Have you thought about just adding drapery?

    Simply Spray is a fabric spray paint. You can find it at a local Michaels, Hobby Lobby and online at Amazon. It has good reviews and this may work for you

    Hi Stephanie, people have used Upholstery Paint on cellular shades with great success! As long as the fabric is absorbent to water, and lighter than the color paint you want to use, the paint should work.
