Location, location, location. It wouldnt be a great idea to situate an ornate yet dark-shaded Mini Lamp Shade over a tall lamp stand in the middle of the hallway -map out where youre placing your lamps first before going out to buy the first Mini Lamp Shade that you see. Appropriate soft-colored shades made of uneasily breakable material for childrens bedrooms if intended to be used as night-lights, moderately bright ones for the living room, and smaller, ornate lamp shades can even be used for pendant chandeliers!
You will use these measurements to determine whether or not the glass lamp shade will be wide enough, or too wide, for your lamp base. Typically you can try to match your antique glass shade dimensions with your current shade dimensions. You will also have to pay close attention to your lamps method of fastening the shade. Some lamps have a "harp", which is a piece of metal that bends around each side of the bulb that the shade sits on and is then secured with a threaded "finial". Other lamps require a shade that attaches at the base of the bulb, essentially being held in place by the bulb. Another type of lamp calls for a shade that clips directly to the body of the bulb, though not many antique glass lamp shades use this method.
If a bold paint color isn’t quite your thing, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to apply this look. One of them is to use two separate materials in your cabinet design. A wood finish is typically selected for part of the look, but you could, for example, mix it with laminate for a sleek, modern look or glass and aluminum to give the room an industrial feel. If you’re planning on mixing and matching in this way, remember that design inspiration is the key to success. Use your intended design style as a starting point and then use sites like Freshome to determine which materials are most commonly used together in that aesthetic. That way, you can be sure that your final product will exceed expectations.
The last step in the process of decorating your own table lighting shade is the actual application of the now prepared solution itself. To do this, you need to immerse the foam brush into the previously diluted solution. Then, you need to press the brush firmly against the top of each side of the shade. As it has been diluted the solution will be runny, so allow the paint to drip down the outside of the shade. Make sure you get an even coating of before it dries. To display your own individualized décor style in a table lamp is easy by following these simple instructions on how to paint the lamp shade.
