Acute How-To: Lace Lampshade

Lace has been one of my favorite trends all year – I just cannot seem to get enough of it.

I  saw a similar lace lampshade on Pinterest a few weeks ago and decided to make my own.  It is a simple and low cost tutorial that will dress up a tired old lampshade and add a pop of interest and texture to any room in your house

What you will need:

  • large piece of lace trim {can be found at any fabric store}
  • spray paint
  • lampshade
  • tape

Step One:

Decide where you want the lace to go and tape it to your lampshade.  I chose to do a border around the bottom of the shade and taped one side down at a time.

Step Two:

Go outside {or into the garage} and spray paint your lampshade.  My shade had four straight edges, so I taped down one piece at a time, sprayed it, and then taped the lace to the second side…and so on.

Step Three:

Allow the shade to dry and display on your favorite lamp.  That’s it – so easy and it makes a dramatic difference!
