Updated Lamp

Happy Monday!  We had a good weekend!  How about you?  I can hardly believe we are headed into March.....makes me giddy with excitement!  I am SO looking forward to spring and seeing green grass and doing some gardening.  I recently redid a lamp TWICE...  My first attempt at updating this lamp was to spray the base black and update the lampshade.  The original lamp was a combination of brass and a shade of maroon....which I don't have a picture to show you.  Needless to say it was UGLY...and very outdated.  The lampshade was pure GROSS.  Here's the updated black lamp with a new lampshade.
However, I just wasn't sold on this look.  I don't know if the shocking white lampshade was too much for the black base or what exactly it was....I just didn't like the look of it.  So, I brushed a soft shade of pink on the base.  I love the new look and I think the lampshade compliments nicely with the base.  Here's the second updated edition.
Enjoy your day....  Thanks for reading.
