I've really been into black and white patterns with splashes of color recently. I've seen a few different snow leopard designs and I saw one woman makeover a slip cover using permanent marker. I was a little nervous trying it on something so big, so I did a lamp shade instead.
I saw this lamp shade at Ikea and knew I could fancy it up somehow. Glad I snagged it.
I grabbed a permanent marker and went at it. I noticed it started looking too "patterny" so I went in the family room and watched a movie so I didn't think about it too much.
I bought the lamp at Goodwill maybe 4 years ago for $2.
