Round One – DIY Lamp Shade Redecoration

LampsUSA offers a colorful array of discount lamp shades for sale. This is not about those shades.

The LampsUSA staff grabbed a handful of economy shades that were simple in both color and shape.

The team used a sharpie and doodled a quick contour map (not to scale) to take advantage of the vintage map paper aesthetics already in place.

The team used a crafter's knife to cut out cloud shapes, then used spray paint to paint shade from black to midnight blue. Using a can of spray on adhesive, the team applied some parchment paper to create translucent white clouds.

Starting with some masking tape, the team created a fun pattern on the shade

For this project, the team created a make-shift paint booth and wore proper protection of course.

Paint issues came up due to lack of expertise, so the team changed gears on the fly and added in some acrylics to cover up the runny spray paint.

So-so results aesthetically speaking, however, the best result was always going to be the fun in creating it.
