But it happens every once in a while…
Totally out of the blue…
I have a stroke of genius…
Or genius for me anyway… I’m sure most of you guys are way above my level.
As I was working on my guest bedroom / office makeover, I decided I needed a lamp for one of the nightstands.
And if you’re gonna have a lamp, you’re gonna need a lampshade.
So, I made over a lamp and picked up a basic white lampshade at Target for $8 on clearance.
We all knew that basic white lampshade wasn’t going to stay basic and white.
It needed something.
So, I asked myself: “Self, what can we do that won’t cost a dime to this lampshade?’
Self responded: “Self, grab the electrical tape, quick!”
And the electrical tape was attained and a black and white striped electrical tape lampshade was born.

This little black and white striped gem took about a whole five minutes to whip up.
Materials and Supplies:
- Electrical Tape
Cut strips of tape.
Apply to lampshade.
Obviously, you really didn’t need those steps, but I’m trying to be a good DIY blogger.
Fun Fact: This lampshade didn’t work quite right on its intended lamp. Instead, it is sitting atop the Kate Spade lamp and the Kate Spade lampshade is on the recently made over lamp that you haven’t seen yet.
Ok – now what will you use electrical tape on??
