I recently got new bedding. My bedside lamp didn’t match anymore, and rather than purchase a new lamp, I decided to spray paint the one I’d been using. I followed a cool tutorial that included spray painting not just the base of the lamp, but also the lamp shade. (See tutorial here.)
The base came out great! The lamp shade…not so much. In the end, I purchased a new lamp shade to finish the project. Here’s proof of this project’s partial failure. Even those of us in the DIY business still have things that don’t quite turn out right.
