Personalized Lampshade

Amp up the appeal of an off-the-shelf lampshade by painting the interior with gold metal craft paint.

When the light is turned on, the reflection produces a soft, flattering glow. Allow the paint to dry fully, then write a hidden message just above the rim with a permanent felt marker. We chose an inspiring quote from film director Aaron Rose: "In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary."
