Hopefully this isn't too late(It's just past 12 right now). I would have posted sooner but my dad "borrowed" my camera and cord without me knowing so I was running around looking for it not know my dad had it.

I redecorated an old touch lamp I had. It was originally gold and kinda ugly. Now its a beautiful tree lamp!

After I painted it

Fantastic, Nezbutt!  Now I wish I hadn't tossed my old brass touch lamps...I may have to scout one out at a thrift shop to copy you (I LOVE tree crafts!)

It's really pretty.

Did you have to break the original glass shade or did it come out more orderly than that?

Thanks everyone!

Solitaire: I have no idea! I just grabbed the first thing that looked like it would work Tongue

PinkingShears: The glass pieces just came right out after I took the lamp apart. Smiley

LOVE.
 Wow- that is just beautiful! Did you use spay paint? Does the "touch" feature still work?

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!
