DIY Anthropologie Lampshade – Decorate Your Room on a Budget

I just pulled up a couple of Anthropologie lampshades and bedding examples and riffed off those. Just sketch very lightly with your pencil and go slowly with the puff paint to avoid blowouts. We want to avoid the splatter spin art look here 🙂

It is hard to see in the pics but it is the texture that makes the shade so awesome. Looks faux embroidered.

I was originally going to leave the white of the shade show through, but thought twice and covered it with a fabric marker. Just let the paint dry and you can go over everything with the marker, it doesn’t do anything to the paint.


This originally was for the babe’s room… but I’m liking it so much it might have to make an appearance in the living room.
