Learn how to paint a lamp shade with this easy peasy tutorial! This simple DIY home decor project will help you update your home easily.

Can you paint a lamp shade – YES you can! I’m going to show you how you can add a stencil pattern to a lamp shade. This project does not require many supplies and is super budget friendly. Let’s look at the list of things you’ll need and the simple steps I used to create my “new to me” lamp.


How To:

First, attach the stencil to your lamp shade using painter’s tape. Be sure the lamp shade’s seam is toward the back and your stencil is centered in the front.

Next, use your applicator sponge to apply the paint to the stencil. Do not push or brush the paint on, simply pounce it in place. Also be sure to off-load your sponge really well. Multiple, light coats of paint are going to work best.

Continue to add light layers of paint until your stencil is filled in to your liking.
