Start by using hand-me-down lamps and with some exquisite Asian inspiration, the lamps will be transformed as if they've been created from Chinese urns.
Remove shade and tape off socket, cord, etc. (Image 1)
Spray a special primer (X-I-M clear primer, made for slick surfaces) on the glass lamps (Image 2).
Next, use a spray gun to recolor the lamps bright turquoise.
Mix 669 Oceanic Teal Benjamin Moore paint with water and a touch of X-I-M latex extender and add to Spra-tool spray cartridge.
Spray on one to two layers of the paint, allowing it to dry between coats. (Test the Spra-tool on cardboard or other test surface first to make sure the solution is working.)
Decoupage cherry-blossom cutouts onto the lamp and spray varnish as the topcoat.
