A friend has given me two parlor lamps, very traditional looking, and of course I cannot let them stand "as is". One of the lamps I've begun painting pink (see color, above). It's such a faint pink it looks like the lightest possible Nestle Strawberry Quick milk. It's almost like a white pink. The name is "ballet pink" and I suppose that captures it best. You really do have to look twice to see that yes, by golly -- the lamp IS pink.
