My grandmothers lamp- the "before"

When my grandmother passed away a few years ago, I picked out some of my favorite pieces of hers to come live with me. This lamp has been sitting in the garage since then.

Here is what it looked like back in the day

Here is what it looks like today in my new house sitting on the same teak nesting tables (another re-do project later down the line).

I took apart the lamp so that I can re-wire it with this Home Depot kit and paint the wood base. Haven't decided what color to paint it yet, I just know that I don't want to keep the matte black. Also, it's out with the 70's tall shade and in with a smaller more modern drum shade.
