Here are two lamps I found for $6 each at a now-defunct thrift store!
Gotta love all that brassy goodness.
I used the spray paint on the bases, harps, and finials. I covered the sockets with Saran wrap and painter's tape.
Oooh, it totally lived up to my expectations!
I gave serious thought to keeping these for my bedroom, but in the end I went with glass lamps. These, however, helped to pay for the glass lamps!
