Painting light/lampshades : details matter, the first little project.. and yes you can.

Here's our first project, painting light/lampshades! My studio is yet to be unpacked, boxes all still around but taking a little break from it all to do these up which have been giving me a little eye tick the last few days, they're from our bedroom so I've had to stare at them for a couple of weeks now, and with a spare hour, I've grabbed the phone put it on a makeshift stand painted them and now sharing. It's a small thing, but it's part of the "detail" and has made a huge difference in the room already. Now metallic shades, I haven't seen any around in the stores or through our design suppliers yet so using the right tools and artisan paints it's a great way to create something completely bespoke. It's been a while since I've run a workshop or done a tutorial video so a bit rusty on that front but if there's one message I want to put out there from this is that even the most unlikely object, decor piece or furniture that you think can't possibly fit into you home, probably can be, a little imagination can go along way and with Artisan Chalk Paint, being able to adhere to pretty much any surface, there's not a lot it can't change and the beauty is you get to re-design it to suit what you're looking to create in terms of look, feel and style of your home, and secondly it doesn't take long to do! Take a look at the Video which is kind of like a full tutorial, remember load and spread thinly with your Staalmeester brush when painting with Chalk Paint, and the spalter brush is the hero here with the Metallic Creme... enjoy!

    This is looking so exciting congratulations. I would love to paint a couple of lampshades where can I get your paint and are you able to match a colour I have in mind?
    Kind regards
