Q: I rescued this old lamp today, and I think it has a ton of potential. It's made of cut glass and what looks like brass with a marble base. A little spray paint could do wonders -- but what color(s)? I want something bold, to offset the very traditional styling. I'd like to leave the base alone, as it seems to be real marble. Should I leave the glass as is, or paint that as well? And what kind of shade could I get? Any advice from the AT community would be much appreciated.
