BEFORE - see the Walla Walla lamp pin on this board - easily convert to this! AFTER Bohemian beaded lamp DIY. Part old jewlery, part old lamp. What if you used ribbon, or junk jewlery also in one tone, like 'pearls' or 'jade' type jewlery!
How to paint lamp shades: Versatex black screen printing paint, which Im learning is the best type of fabric paint around. I have actually just used latex paint on a textured old lamp shad to bring some life back to it :)
