Danish home design photo in Hamburg

Artful lampshade

Scandinavian, Hamburg

De-light-ful: Good job that we listened in geometry class, because here we put together isosceles triangles to create a masterpiece! HERE’S WHAT WE NEED: White lampshade, cutting surface, ruler, cutter, burnishing bone, paint brush, deco paint, tesa® Masking Tape PREMIUM CLASSIC 50 mm AND THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE: › Stick some strips of masking tape directly onto the cutting surface and cut them to squares using the cuter and the ruler, then halve them diagonally. › Peel off the triangles and arrange them on the lampshade in your desired pattern. › Use the burnishing bone to press down the edges completely. › Use the paint brush to colour the remaining lampshade, but make sure to create an evenly opaque coat, as the lampshade will otherwise appear spotty. › Leave the paint to dry before peeling off the masking tape.
