Now this photo really does not do the lamp justice... The lamp shade was once a plain, white, and boring shade. I decided to switch it up so I took a spongy like paint brush and soaked it up with water, I dipped the wet paint brush in acrylic paint, and then I dabbed it on the lamp shade. The paint and water would run creating this water color, tie dye like look. You can use any colors you would like. Be sure to remove the shade from the lamp!
