Lamp finished . . . check that off my list

Remember the lamp I found at Goodwill not too long ago? Here are the before pictures.
I took it into the lamp shop and had the wiring checked out. Then I got the shade, a little on the pricier side but perfect (and when you spend under $10 on a lamp, you can afford to put a little money into it). I painted all the gold parts including the chain on/off pulls and painted the center pole. The lady at the lamp store talked me into the finial which is the perfect touch. Am diggin' it all.

Just beautiful! I love it. And I am lucky to have a brother that's an electrician for these little makeovers.

Your lamp turned out beautifully. What a wonderful bargain you will have to look at and enjoy for years to come.
