Taught by Amanda Brown
Using pretty wallpaper of your choice and just a few special lamp-making supplies, Amanda Brown of Spruce Upholstery teaches you how to make a high-style custom lampshade. She shares expert tips and tricks for snuggly wrapping the paper around the lampshade rings and finishing the edges of the shade with velvet trim for an extra luxe effect. Made up in a metallic print wallpaper, it pairs perfectly with a vintage lamp base.
