Easy DIY: Nautical Lampshade

Tired of your table lamps? Update them by recovering the shades in statement wallpaper remnants. Simply apply a layer of wallpaper paste to the existing shade then affix the paper, eliminating wrinkles as you go using a wallpaper smoother and overlapping by about a 1⁄2″ at the seam.

Editor’s tip: Striped wallpaper looks best on a straight-sided barrel shade.
