Painted Lamp Shades

April 25, 2012 by admin

I’m really feeling these glossy painted lampshades.  It’s something a little different and feels fresh even though it’s totally old-school.  I hardly ever see these rigid cardboard type lampshades out there, so I must keep my eye out for them at flea markets and thrift shops.  Maybe I can paint some in some fun colours for spring!

    I really like this look, too! Will be on the lookout next month at the Brimsfield market in Mass!

    I love this look, too! I will be on the lookout for some of these vintage shades next month at the Brimfield market in Massachusetts!

  3. Thanks for the tip. I’m going to be on the look-out for them too! I guess they’d need to be sturdy cardboard, rather than paper for that kind of painting, right?
