Updating a lamp & shade with Chalk Paint™

 
 
Firstly apologies for lack of brilliant photography and step-by-step images! I wasn't planning on posting this project, but it turned out really well, just what I was after...so here we go!
 

 
I found a lamp in a second-hand shop and I thought it might benefit from a little colour! The plain white shade was from target.
I have been loving orange and blue colour combinations, and had lose plans for a washed, blue effect on the shade. (That's the beauty of chalk paint, plans can be changed or painted over mid-project;))

I painted the base in Barcelona Orange and then by really wetting the shade, and slowly layering up the colours to let them bleed, I created a water-colour like effect with Aubusson Blue, Antibes Green and Old White.
 
 
  
 
 
 

I love how the shade changes colour depending on light in the house or whether the switch is on :)
