Lamp Shade Makeover

I have two of these lamps I bought for 5 bucks at a thrift store a year or so ago, thinking someday I would do something with them. Well last night I got into a crafty mood and with shade in tow I proceeded to get the mod podge and some tissue paper. Here is a before shot of one of them.
Now here is the after results to the shade. Still haven't decided if I will paint the base of the lamps or leave them blue. Suggestions? :)
There were a few wrinkles here and there but I think that just adds to the vintage look I was after. My supplies were two old lampshades Mod Podge Sponge brush Package of tissue paper (dollar tree - 2pks) some gold glitter paint Now to find more things to mod podge! :)
