Stenciled lampshade {DIY}

Nothing fancy here, just a quick and easy stenciled lampshade.  
I bought this awesome lamp at Marshalls back before Christmas.
It had a shabby french look to the base and the lampshapde was just a simple burlap.
Not to mention it was only $20.00 bucks, so Home it went.

Being the "stencil queen" you have come to know...
I thought, why not just jazz this up slightly.
I have enough going on in our bedroom in terms of decor, so I just went for simplicity here.

I have to admit, I held back on doing the entire shade with all these flowers....
hmmm...I still may, let me know what you think...

Plain and simple....

So what do you think, go more, or keep it less?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
I WILL see you back here Sunday evening for the Magazine copy cat challenge.
Can't wait!!~

REMEMBER...there will be NO newbie party this coming MONDAY, the magazine copy cat challenge is in lieu of IT!

Hard choice. It looks really good like that. But it came out great, so more could be cute? Great shade. What a steal ;) Maybe have it like this a bit, then add more later and it'll be NEW again!

Debbie, you won't believe me, but my daughter and I just did something very similar today. We are redoing her whole bedroom and, at the same time, trying to reuse some of the items she already had. I love your lamp! I think it looks beautiful just like it is. Very elegant!

It looks great! I like it like this, but if you add more, I would add a bunch! I say simple or extreme :) have a great weekend!

Oh, I love it exactly the way you have it. It's simple with a just a little splash of something extra.

I have a shade just like that, Debbie! Isn't it horrible that I was thinking what I could do to mine, too! What is wrong with us that we can't just leave things alone. : ) At any rate, I like the simplicity of the stencil as you have it now.

I think it's SIMPLY lovely just the way it is ! I have a shade I want to cover in burlap but haven't tried it yet . One of those projects on the eternal list :)

I really love how that turned out! I am a "less is more" gal, so I say it is perfect the way it is. If you have too much on it, it will look busy (like a patterend lampshade) and you'll lose focus of the simple flower design in the middle.

Definitely less is more in this case. I think it looks really sophisticated as it is, and it complements the base very well.

Looks great, Debbie! Have you tried to stencil on the reverse side of a pillow cover? If I were as good at stencils as you are, I'd flip over the covers I bought this morning. Come visit and see what I bought. You know I love lamps and that lampshade now has your stamp/stencil!
I can't wait to see the Magazine Copy posts. Helen

I love it just like it is...this looks like it was soooo much more than $20! Don't you love finding things like that? This gives me an idea to "fancy" up a plain linen shade I got at Wally World for $13...can't wait to break out the stencils.
