From Stephanie: Hop on the global decor trend and give lamps a globally inspired look with paint pens! White paint pens were used to revamp lamps with a mud cloth inspired pattern.

What You Need

  • White Paint Pen

  • Dark Lamps


  1. Clean lamp bases to remove any residue. Residues can effect adherence of the paint.
  2. Use paint pen to mark the mud cloth pattern.
  3. Spray with clear finishing spray if desired.
