The Lamp Saga Pt.1
So we inherited these lamps from my mother-in-law when we used to live in our apartment. They work fine and kinda match our interior.. in a kinda-because-they're-free way.
So I started a journey to modernize them.
I went down to the local hardware store and got some Rustoleum Metal Finish paint in a brushed nickel color.
I taped off the vase portion of the lamp and went to town.

I did very thin coats, and probably used 4-5 coats for full coverage. It worked so well that I used it on the 2 brass light fixtures in our house.

Lamp is better but not finished yet...
