So cute!
Polka dots are more than a passing trend... polka dots are forever! We love this super simple, super quick project that took a plain lampshade from "whatever" to "WOW!" This is a project anyone can do, and it looks great in our living room.

    Use painter’s tape to attach the stencil to the lampshade, making sure it is as tight as possible.
