|Vintage Marble Base Table Lamp - Before|
This projected started with a Craigslist purchase. I went with the pink organ donor lamp in mind but I spy something else I need. Purchase price $8.00. Sweet! I just wish I could figure a way to light the base. So cool when the light shines up through the marble. Love it.
Here are some close-ups...notice the grunge.
STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE: Dismantle and sand-blast. There was peeling paint and a little bit of oxidation so sand-blasting was a good choice. Leaves a nice clean and smooth surface to paint.

Now I just need to make a color choice. My go-to color choice is Oil Rubbed Bronze (who doesn't love ORB?) but I need a complimentary color. Or do I? I'm going to think on this one for a while. What do you think?
