If you're looking for a fast way to spruce up a lamp shade - this is definitely it. It only took me all of about 15 minutes to do the whole thing.
Here's what you'll need for this project...for easy planning I pulled all of the supplies into the Amazon slideshow below so you can just order all at once - or whatever you need - if you'd like.
- White Acrylic Paint
- Pouncers, foam brush or paint brush
- Lamp Shade

I found it easiest to hold the lamp shade in my hand while painting. This is one of those times you really wish you had a third hand....but if you can use your hand to apply pressure to the backside of the shade in the area you're painting it helps keep the stencil tight against the lamp shade.
I'm thinking about taking my lamp shade makeover one step further and spray painting the base, but I haven't figured out exactly what color to do yet. What do you think?
