I was inspired by the modern and graphic polka dot patterns below - one on wallpaper and one on a Kate Spade handbag - to add a few dots to a lamp shade in our dining room...
Pienet Kivet Wallpaper from One Kings Lane
Kinkley Small Karen Satchel from Kate Spade
I was going for the imperfect ikat stacked dot look - that's what I'm calling it. Should I coin that phrase??
Here's how I did it...a super easy project you can do during naptime.
Instructions (I'll try not to insult your intelligence...):
1. Pour paint on plate.
2. Dab sponge in paint.
3. Press sponge on shade.
5. Let dry.
I know I'm shocking you with my brilliant idea...but hey, sometimes the best projects are those we can do in 15 minutes with stuff we already have on hand.
I think it pepped up the room a lot! What do you think? Like I always say, go graphic or go home...ok, I don't always say that. (I just said it once, and I promise not to say it again.)
