Zebra Lamp Project

May 31, 2011

My boring lampshade finally got a makeover.  I had been looking for a zebra patterned lamp shade in a neutral color like taupe, but the ones I found were wildly expensive.  So, I decided to paint my plain white lampshade.  Even if it came out horrible, I figured I could just get another white one.

So, I found a pattern and blew it up.  Then traced it on the lampshade.

Finally, I mixed white and brown acrylic paint to get the shade I wanted and painted in my traced lines.

And, here’s the finished product.  I think it turned out pretty good.

My living room has been making a slow transformation and hopefully will be finished soon.
