Here’s an unusual tutorial: it’s not an ombre lampshade, it’s an ombre painted base of concrete! I totally love this bold modern or minimalist monochromatic look, which will easily fit such a space and will add texture to the decor. Making a concrete base, especially an ombre one, will take some time, more than just dying a lampshade but it’s totally worth it. Add a black or white lampshade to match the look and voila, you have a unique piece to rock!
