How to paint lampshades for a fresh new look

This sweet lampshade was painted in Vintage Duck Egg Blue with Dixie Belle chalk paint.  The finishing touches of birds, branches and blooms using IOD stamps, bring about this makeover to a style transformation that will have you running to your storage room to dig out that old dingy lampshade, and create your own masterpiece.  

I found two of these matching drum lampshades at a second hand store, and can picture them hanging from the ceiling over the side tables in a bedroom.  I ❤️ them so much, it is hard for me to not keep them for myself instead of selling them! They are nice and tall and made of silk. I felt I was lucky enough to scoop up a pair, so I wanted to do something really special with them.  

Here is what I used on the entire project:

  • Vintage Duck Egg Blue by Dixie Belle.
  • Warm accent Dixie Belle colors of Chocolate, Pine Cone, Buttercream, In The Navy, Plum Crazy, Palmetto, Collard Greens & Vintage Duck Egg Blue.
  • IOD stamp images.
  • Dixie Belle Gold Metallic for the upper rim of the lamp shade.
