  1. Hi Velma and it is nice to meet you. I inherited the lamps from my Dad after he died. The lamps still had the tags on them, but I don’t recall the store. They were likely from Macy’s where he worked or Hobby Lobby where he shopped (a lot) and of course it was some time ago that he bought them so that is likely why you don’t find them anywhere.

    Sue, Where did you get the lamp bases, I love them and have not seen this style in the store actually any store. PLEASE SHARE THIS .

  3. Thank you Carol, coming from you that means a lot. The table is from Home Goods.

    This came out beautifully! It doesn’t even look like the same lamp! I have several things I’d like to try this on, but I’d really like the front door paint first. But I have to get over the pinch of the holidays first, lol.
    Wonderful job and wonderful product!

  6. These lamps turned out great, Sue! And it sounds like it was a pretty easy project. I will definitely have to try the Modern Masters finishes on a project or two after the holidays. Merry Christmas to you!

  7. Oh how I love this color of patina! And it is perfect with your other accessories. The lamps are totally fab —if you ever get tired of them —do send them my way! Congrats on a another great makeover!

  8. A “very unique application” is a perfect description Heather for this old world style metal effects so thank you for that and I so appreciate how much you like how the lamps turned out too.

  9. Honestly, you made my day today with such nice compliments Carolann. I can’t wait to try this metal effects system on some more things around the house.

  10. Thank you Michelle so much. We love how the lamps turned out and now I can’t wait to see yours too. I am eager to try it on my candlesticks.

  11. Wow Sue. These are beautiful. I have the same kit that I plan to use on lamps as well. It was fun to read about the process so I know what to do. Simply gorgeous in your home too.

    These came out absolutely beautiful! The lamps were already fantastic, but adding this very unique application not only gave them their own style, but they now match your home perfectly. Can’t wait to try this product. Thank you for your great photos and inspiration.

  13. Sue, I am in love with your lamps now! Oh my gosh – they are stunning! And on that table – simply gorgeous! I love the shades of blue and copper. What an amazing transformation. One of your best to date – outside of that stunning piano of course! I love all of your work Sue. It’s done with such attention to detail. I am always inspired by you!
