Lamp Redo Number 2

3 free lamps. 2 down, 1 to go. Here is lamp #1, AKA Monkey Lamp, in case you forgot.

I did not name lamp number 2 - suggestions?



If you look closely, you can see the layer of dust. Upon washing it revealed a stunning beige with black speckles.



Primed and painted black with a new lampshade.



I do like.

I don't think I'll ever buy a new lamp again. You are good a lamp decorating. :)

You made the lampshade look new. The black that you painted on its base is perfect and as we all know red is a perfect combination also of a black color. And that is what you did. You use a red color for the lamp cover.
