How to give an antique lampshade a makeover

So you have some dingy lampshades laying around where you are in a state of confusion on what to do with them??? This is a great and simple makeover, using a little spray paint and those beautiful Edison type light bulbs for character.

I used the Watco acrylic spray to prime my piece and to keep the rust from pushing through. Then I sprayed the frame with the Rust-oleum gloss black for the color.  The simplicity of it all can make for a fun decor statement!

Remember to paint the harp and lamp were the bulb is, to make sure all everything coordinates (*see the red arrow with the text notation in one of the images below).
