lamp rehab

My mother in law gave me this lamp Saturday to sell in my booth. She no longer wanted it.

I know brass is trying to make a come back but I thought I would give it a makeover anyway. First I recovered the black plastic shade with a long strip of burlap, slowly wrapping it around and around. Then, I painted the bottom of the lamp with an oil based cream paint. 

Then I painted the plastic tubing under the shade. And Voila!

Here is the before and after together: 

Next step, sell in the booth! I am excited!
