Brass Lamp Transformation

Don't you just love it when you find something stashed in the basement & bring it back to life. We received this Westwood brass candlestick lamp as a wedding gift back a loooong time ago.  I was really surprised to find that its' still out there for sale.  Ignore the nice mess in the basement storage room!  I also found a Stiffel lamp at Goodwill that is going to get sprayed so that I have a pair:

Here's the before space:
