Painted lampshade
Robbie Caponetto

Paint and Peel

Stickers can double as easy-to-use stencils. To recreate the effect at left, cover top and bottom edges of the lampshade with painters' tape. Be sure to apply tape firmly and evenly. Apply stickers of choice after tape is in place. Apply two to three coats of chocolate-colored spray paint to shade. Let dry thoroughly. Remove stickers and tape with tweezers. Paint the lamp base with two or three coats of white (or neutral) so the numbers will get all the attention. We used Rust-Oleum's Protective Enamel spray paint in Leather Brown (#7775) for the shade, and Appliance Epoxy in Gloss White (#7881) for the base.
