Okay, I usually have tried out the DIYs that I share on here, but this time I’m jumping straight to the sharing because I’m excited and I know this will be easy. I need a lighting solution for my living room, so I’ve always got one eye open for interesting options. Ever the sucker for a black and white pattern, I saw this spotted lamp shade and had to share!
I’m not sure if the lamp shade in this photo is a DIY project or if it was purchased, but this would be a very easy (and cheap) project for you to do at home. Ikea sell these lantern shades for next to nothing (£2.75). You have a couple of options for how to make your spots. You could draw them in with a black art marker or you could get a pot of black paint and stamp little spots on with a sponge brush– both of which can be found in your local art supply shop. So excluding shipping, this project should come in around £5 or £6. Not bad!
This look would be a better fit for our bedroom, I think, but we have a light from Habitat that we’ve been procrastinating on hanging. If anyone tries this DIY, please let me know and send a picture!
