As far as I know nobody but nobody decorates with shiny brass anymore. That means there's a boatload of cast-off brass lamps available for transformation. Abby saw beyond the brass, got to work with some silver leaf, and spruced up this reject to a more understated elegance. Now it coordinates with another one of her rescued lamp makeovers.
So these are the BEFORE pics.
Silver leaf, new shades and Voila'. You can see how Abby transformed the shiny brass here and how she figured out how to tone down the shiny silver leaf on the second lamp when it looked a little too much like aluminum foil. Visit Abby at her blog, Tales and Trials.
