Paint it pink!

I continue to plan for my apartment ... the one I will have someday. It's been a long while since I had a place of my very own, and it's high time I did again. Circumstances at the moment don't allow, but eventually ...

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.
