The stylish interior is, above all, well-thought-out details. They are an indicator of a good impression of the room. These important details include lighting. It happens that the once-pleasing eye lamp is tired or does not fit into the room's updated after-renovation situation. Do not rush to get rid of the old lamp, this master class will help a nondescript piece of furniture to find a second life. The classic shape of the table lamp fits perfectly with the style of "shebbie chic".
This trend in the interior originated in England, mainly characterized by frayed or aged furniture of light shades, soft laces, pastel colors and floral motifs. To achieve the effect of antiquity, decoupage and craquelure techniques will be applied in the master class.

Stages of decoration
The first thing to do is to unscrew the bulb and remove the lamp shade. The dry, clean surface of the lamp base is covered with soil and left to dry.
Cover the base of the lamp with two layers of bronze-colored paint, leave to dry.
Apply craquelure varnish by brushing in one direction, for example, only from top to bottom. We dry for one and a half to two hours. The readiness of the lamp for further work is checked with a finger, it should only slightly stick to the surface. Check carefully in an inconspicuous place, so as not to leave prints.
Mix white, blue and green paint to make a pastel turquoise color. To do this, add a little blue and a drop of green to the white paint, now mix it up to a uniform pale-turquoise hue. Paint the base of the lamp, remembering that you can not brush twice in the same place. We are waiting for the appearance of the craquelure effect.
After drying of the cracked layer, proceed to decoupage. We cut out flower compositions from the napkin, separate the top layer and try them on the lamp.
To glue flowers, it is convenient to use the file.We put the picture on the file with the seamy side to us, moisten the surface of the napkin with a brush with water.
We attach the file to the selected place on the lamp and translate the image. From above we gently coat with PVA glue, which is very diluted with water. We are waiting for drying.
Cover the base of the lamp with a matte acrylic lacquer and dry it.
It remains only to collect the lamp, and the desk lamp in the style of shebbi-chic is ready!
