I unscrewed the lid off a bottle, popped the lampshade onto the bottle neck and screwed the top back on, this gave me something to hold onto and turn the lampshade while painting but it also was a good place to leave the lampsheade while the paint dried.
Time to start painting............
While the paint was drying I cut a strip of the wallpaper I used in the guestroom, because this is where the lamp is going.
Using wallpaper paste I carefully stuck the wallpaper around the lampshade.
Voila! a wee lampshade make-over that hasn't cost me a penny :)
