Ikea Gold Leaf DIY

Cool Idea: DIY Gilded Lamp Shades

Lately, I've been admiring light fixtures that use metallic lining to enhance their glow. I've seen several table lamps with gilded lining, but I love the idea of using this technique on pendant lights in a place where you can enjoy the lining the most, like the example below. Home enthusiasts Lee and Kevin Kleinhelter feature the look in their renovated office space. An undeniably talented couple – Lee owns the home decor boutique, Pieces, and Kevin has a custom construction and renovation firm – they created a stylish and gender-neutral space for working and meeting with clients.

The lights hang above a beautiful wooden table that serves as the focal point of their conference room. To try out this look in your own home, pick up a couple of IKEA Kulla Pendant Lamps and follow this gold leaf tutorial!

I recently helping my mom update her chandelier with this a similar DIY. We swapped the shades to black and used Martha Stewart's new all-purpose paint on the insides. Looks just like gold leaf. So glamorous!
