Stencilled lamp shades
Jen at Tatertots & Jello shared the most delicious tutorial on stencilled damask lampshades today. Rush over to see how incredibly gorgeous it is.
Inspired, I set out to try it for myself.
I cut out this flower stencil, used the tulip paint that Jen used and set to work.
I followed Jen’s instructions to make the paint look more dimensional, but it didn’t work for me (and I paid $10 a bottle for the paint, rats). Maybe I didn’t put the paint on thick enough?
Anyway, they turned out great otherwise and I love how they have made the lamps look like new.
I'm joining in on some of the parties found here
