DIY Lampshade Of Paint Sticks

I’ve already showed you how to make a cool sunburst mirror of a bunch of paint sticks. It isn’t the only thing you can make of it. For example you can make a lampshade from about 50 paint sticks and a simple cheap lampshade frame using hot glue and stain. The cool things about such lampshade are that it looks great but costs almost nothing. Besides all you need to do is to glue paint sticks to the lampshade frame and cover them with a coat of stain.

    This is really nice, I wonder if you can you can do the same kind of thing to make a basket for a living room to hold magazines or blankets?

    I don’t know the stain’s brand. The original tutorial doesn’t have this info.

    As a Home Depot paint associate, we don’t mind helping. But keep in mind that those paint sticks are not free, because you are not paying for them. We pay for them as a service to our customers who are buying paint. Their is talk about charging customers who are not buying paint a fee for the sticks. We’ve even ran out of sticks because of people asking for 10,20,50 sticks. We had to start telling people no when asking for sticks in large quantities so our paying customers will get them. Even removed the sticks from the counters due to the “grab n go” people who think they are getting away with a free be.

    Went to Home Depot, bought paint on Sunday…now I see why they were out of paint sticks!

    If you did this with a table lamp wouldn’t it make it too dark to see?
