DIY Lamp Shade Revamp with Spray Paint!

DIY Lamp Shade Revamp

Hi! I’m Amber Anderson, I am a pastors wife, mom of 2 lovely boys, and an avid DIY’er. I post regularly about DIY projects, crafts and family life on MotherhoodMusings.com.

Raise your hand if every lamp shade in your house is cream, beige, tan, or white. Hands down. Now raise your hand again if you wish they weren’t. Perfect! This is the DIY for you.

It’s 2 steps, and can be done by anyone. Ready?

What you need:
Old lamp shade
Spray paint
Plastic bag
Tape

1. Tape off the top with any type of tape and a plastic grocery bag.

2.  Spray lamp shade in even coats until completely covered. And your done!

*Tips* To check if you have enough coats: Replace shade and turn on the lamp. The shade will be slightly splotchy if you need another coat.  Also, I suggest a lighter color paint so splotchy spots are minimized and light can come through better.

I also suggest doing this the first time with a shade you aren’t necessarily in love with in case spraying goes astray. :) Better safe than sorry!
