You know I love simple crafts.
I mean, less time spent doing projects around the house means time for more important things like watching Downton Abbey.
I’m busy worrying about Lady Sybil’s baby, the fate of Bates, and what’s going to happen when Thomas keeps making unwelcome advances towards Jimmy the footman!

Ready to remove your blindfold and be dazzled?
DIY Gilded Reverse Stencil Lampshade
1) Stick self adhesive silk screen onto inside of lampshade
2) Use sponge brush to pounce liquid gilding (I used bronze and silver) or craft paint onto lampshade
3) Peel off stencil while still wet
4) Turn on the light and admire your one of a kind lamp!
Go ahead and gawk.

Look, she’s blushing!
