We just moved into our new apartment and the last people left a lampshade behind. It was pretty plain and horrid, so I had to do something to it!

Spraypainted the base blue, and masked off the diamond pattern with masking tape and sprayed the purple. The argyle "stitching" I drew on with silver Sharpie and then added the little dangle beads as a finishing touch.

Unfortunately, we don't actually have a lamp to use it on, and all of our main lights are too high, so it's on my tomato plants for now Tongue

Hey, tomato plants need to look incredibly cool, too, right?

I love me some argyle, but it never really occurred to me to decorate stuff with it, and you make it sound so easy. Definitely a great idea, and wonderfully executed!
