How to paint lamp shades: Versatex black screen printing paint, which Im learning is the best type of fabric paint around. I have actually just used latex paint on a textured old lamp shad to bring some life back to it :)
Sisal Lamps: You can renew your old lamp with a touch of sisal in it. Chose which part of your lamp you will cover (you can do it with the bottom part or the upper one) and glue the sisal around it. This creative idea will give a new look to your room!
