And they could probably do it better too.
I am talking about a fast cheap splatter paint lampshade update Jackson Pollock style.
I know I have been MIA in the DIY department all summer, so I am starting off gently.
First you will need this:
old shade, a little RIT dye any color, old toothbrush or stiff brush and gloves
(last one is very important, messy!)
Find a spot outside you can get dye on and not get yourself into trouble:
Dip your brush into the dye:
And splash, flick and swing- just get angry at that shade!
You can drink whiskey too if you want to channel your inner Pollock,
but it is only 8 am here so I will stick to my coffee.
I also used my finger and flicked it through the toothbrush to get a finer spatter look.
I wound up using both techniques to get this:
If you want it super fancy, line the inside of the shade with gold foil paper afterwards.
All lit up:
Easy. Total cost $4.99 for the bottle of dye.
Wait til you see tomorrow's DIY.
( I had a lot of dye left over.)
