Operation lamp update

I love to just look though thrift stores. On a recent run I saw this amazing lamp so I asked myself, could I use a lamp. Yes! In the living room. Question two, does it work? I found an outlet and a bulb and it did! Ok so how much? $7… But wait yellow stickers are half price today! Scoooorrreee! So I loved the details and glass and figured someday ill find a new shade.

Not loving all of the bronze look I layered on a coat of paint followed by a darker coat of the gray blue and hit it with a rub of stain leaving just a hint of the old life it had.

Here is the before and after, not bad for $3.50 and a little elbow grease.
