I love lamps. I have always loved lamps. I have had quite a few antique lamps. I have sold quite a few antique lamps. This is beginning to sound like a children’s book. See Spot Run.
I don’t usually mind painting lamps if I think I would like them better or if they would fit my décor or someone else’s décor better. Everyone has been happy with the painted results.
I like to paint them in solid colors, white, black, red, apple green. I feel it modernizes them.
Unfortunately, I didn’t keep too many photos of all the lamps I have painted.
But you get the idea, right?
Anyway, my dilemma is this:
I bought this one at an antique store about 30 years ago. It has the original Nicolletti’s shade. I just can’t paint it. I am selling it in its original glory. I finally figured out why I can’t paint it. All of the lamps I have painted were purchased with the intention to paint them. Thirty years ago, I would have never thought of that. I can’t paint it. Sometimes you just have to walk away.
