      Poke holes in a dark lampshade for an interesting look.. Good project to do with older kids when they start with the "I'm bored" story...just an idea!

      Super easy Idea to draw attention away from ugly lamp base! Spray paint lamp base a medium to light neutral color. Spray paint old lampshade a dark color. Poke/punch holes having larger and fewer holes toward top adding smaller and smaller holes toward bottom increasing the number. Using heavy craft paper/stiff fabric,cut out city skyline with scissors/exacto knife. Place on flat surface and spray several coats of lampshade paint. Attach with spray adhesive. Poke holes following city outline.

      That's amazing, I actually thought about doing this to my lamp shade. But that was whenever I wanted my bedroom to be totally city centered. It was a cool idea though, I thought.

    I am so going to do this. It looks like an old wooden bucket turned into a lamp shade, but it's actually wood-stained paint stick mixers hot glued to a lamp shade! I guess you could do the same thing to make a hanging fixture. Wow!
