Quick Lamp Restyle with Tissue and Mod Podge

I've had this little uplight forever and the shade had yellowed and had little cracks all over. 

Time for a restyle!!

I hit my stash for Mod Podge and some pretty turquoise tissue paper. 
I crinkled the tissue up and tore it into postage stamp size pieces.

After cleaning the light shade I covered the whole thing with the crumpled tissue, 
including a generous border folded over the top. At this point I was 
really jazzed because this looks like burnished STONE.

I sealed it with clear acrylic spray.

Even during the day it lends a pop of the blue color I love to it's place on my shelf.

Oooh aaaah!

I like it even better when it's lit up!

It's the perfect light for the shelf at the end of my 
hallway and it highlights my painting so nicely!

Sometimes a project just comes together so quickly and 
easily that it makes me laugh out loud. This was one of them.
Now I'm looking at the other lamp right over there......
