In the process of trying to redo our living room, I am on a roll to brighten things up. We put a porch on a few years ago and the roof has cut out our light considerably. I purchased this lamp (there are 2) at Marshall's a few years ago, they were a mottled painted faux pewter. I decided a few weeks ago (before blogging) to paint the lamps with Miss Mustard Seeds Luckett's Green. Gave the base and finial two coats then waxed with Annie Sloan clear wax. I decided to jazz up the lamp shade by gluing on the beaded trim - I think I might need something to balance the shade on the top, what do you think?
