Featuring: Michael Penney

Add a fresh, custom touch to any room with painted and trimmed lampshades. Style editor Michael Penney demonstrates how to revamp cheap vintage or basic shades with glossy paint, velvet and grosgrain ribbon and jute twine. (He also reveals the new Sylvania A19 LED light bulb, which lasts 50,000 hours compared to 800 hours that an incandescent bulb would provide.) Try one of these budget-chic projects this weekend!
