Stain Paint Sticks
To begin, use a cloth to apply wood stain to the paint sticks. Be sure to wear rubber gloves for this step to prevent staining your nails or hands.
Apply Stain to Lampshade
Using the same cloth for the paint sticks, evenly coat the lampshade with the stain and allow to dry.
Next, apply a durable adhesive to the paint sticks and adhere to the stained lampshade.
Clamp down the paint sticks to the lampshade with clothespins for a secure hold. Let dry for 24 hours.
Put it Together
Finally, return the lampshade to the lamp base for the final look.
