My office is just a work in progress. I think I’ve changed my mind about 30 times when it comes to this room. I really want to show you guys the final reveal but until then you can definitely get your fix with these posts including the super popular confetti wall I did a few years ago and the gold gumball machine that is SO fun!  One thing that’s not leaving my office anytime soon is GOLD. With the help of Lamps.com I made over this cute little lampshade the other day. Spray painting my base a bright pink by Rust-Oleum and giving my shade a geometric makeover!

The first thing I did was start out with a blank lampshade. Then I added some painters tape (Scotch) and began to give it a random geometric pattern. I overlapped and connected the different lines of tape and made sure it adhered to the lampshade very well so there was no bleeding!

Then I took an artist brush and painted the shade gold using Martha Stewart Crafts Mutli Surface Metallic Gold Acrylic Craft Paint. I love this paint sooooo much! It goes on super easy and is the perfect shade of gold. Not that brassy gold. A pure pretty gold:0)

A few minutes after I painted the entire thing,did some touch ups and removed the tape! I also used fine sand paper to scuff it JUST a bit! The result is amazing and it was a super easy thing to do! How fun would different colors be? You could do so much with this technique. It reminds me of when I was in elementary school and I did the random scribble and then used my box of crayola to color them all different colors! Awesome!
