New Life For An Old Lampshade

I just touched up the edges of a "found" lampshade with black permanent marker, sponged it off, and it's amazing how respectable it looks now. I found the shade on trash day on an old corroded brass lamp and rescued it. I had seen a decorating tip about sprucing up your white, or other colored, lampshades with colored marker. They used to have a lot of decoration on lampshades in the old days (see old movies) and this is a very simple modern way to do some decorating.
