Striped lampshade DIY

While I was waiting for my DIY'ed dresser to dry, inspiration struck. I was thinking about this lamp, and decided to try recreating the shade with some black craft paint and a cream coloured drum shade I had lying around.

Instead of two thin lines, I decided to try a thin line on top and a thicker line on bottom. I used painter's tape to mark the lines, which I just eyeballed as I went around the shade.

Next, I used some acrylic craft paint to fill in the lines.

Good coverage takes a bit of time, but the final product is well-worth it. I especially love the little imperfections that show it's handmade. Now I just need a lamp...
