I love lamps! I picked up a pair at a yard sale a few weeks ago. The finish was dated but the “bones” were good. They are nice and heavy but the finish was dated.
Nothing a little paint can’t fix.
Sprayed with grey paint.
Then for a little more interest, I did somewhat of a whitewash with gesso. It toned down the paint and added a little depth.
The original shades were definitely not a match for the lamps so I bought shades and added a beaded trim.
Installed in the shop!
