I have a bit of an obsession with coloring, doodling and embellishing everything and anything. It started with doodles in elementary school, and as a twenty year old, it has turned into crafting and adding designs to everyday items such as a lamp! This project is super simple, and costs under $10! Read on to see how to add a fun design to any lampshade.
So I fell in love with this lamp, when I found it in the sale aisle of Target, and knew it would be the perfect addition to my living room. Yet, I wanted to sort of add a bit of personality, to make this lamp truly mine.
For this project you will need:
- A Lamp (this one was on sale at Target!)
- Doilies (The Christmas Tree shop sells a pack of twenty for about $1.50
- Sharpies (I found these wonderful metallic colors in gold, silver and bronze)
This project is so easy, start by taping the doilies on the parts of the lamp to make sure you like the design. Next, take one of the sharpies and fill in the spaces of the doily. Be careful to not move the doily, or move your hand over the wet marker as this will cause a bit of smudging!
And voila! You have a personal lamp that will match your space and shows a bit of your decorating style! I can’t wait to do this project on other lamps, and love the idea of using favorite quotes or other designs!
