Gold Dipped Lamps

I'm working on the guest room in Ariel's New/Old house. The beds needed bedside lamps and since I'm trying to work with things we already have, these two ginger jar lamps got a new paint treatment dipped in gold.
If you've been reading Design Megillah for a while you may remember these lamps when I found them a few years ago at a thrift shop for $6.00!
Originally they were painted orange and the lampshades were given a yarn treatment...three colors of yarn were wrapped around the shade.
They worked in the guest room at the first house...
but in the new house, the guest room walls are painted a soft gray violet and the orange lamps just wouldn't work. I picked up a pair of plain white lamp shades at Lowe's and finished them with green grosgrain ribbon for a custom look.
I'm bringing them up this week—can't wait to see how they look in the newly painted guest room.  Room reveal coming soon!
