painted peacock lampshades

Recently I decided to replace the lampshades in our bedroom and of course I had to somehow put a creative spin on them!

I started with two plain lampshades and lightly sketched out my designs- of course I picked peacock feathers.

Using Tulip Soft Fabric Paint I filled in each feather with paint.

Once the paint was dry, I used a fine tip permanent marker to add a few lines and details.
