New Lampshades For Some Older Lamps

People.

I have issues with being able to make decisions.

Here’s why:

I’m the middle of 3 sisters,

+ every Saturday during the decade of the 70’s,

 we sisters, along with Mom,

would go clothes shopping at the Venture store.

Show of hands!
Who remembers
Venture stores?

Back in that long-ago Venture dressing room,

I always needed my peeps’ approval.

If anybody laughed at my platform shoes, that did it!

OUT of the shopping cart they were flung!

So.  today I need your input on my candlestick lamps.

I ordered a pair of these at least 10 years ago,

+ just last month, I gave them a ‘refresh’

with a pair of Frenchie stripe lampshades from Pottery Barn.

I love the lampshades!  I knew I would!

So what’s the problem?  you ask!

Here are my concerns:

1. Do the lampshades go with the lamps?

2. Do we still love the bronze metal?

3. Should I spray paint the bases another ‘now’ color?

4. What color?

5.  Should I just fling those naughty bases aside + start over?

Whaddaya think?

What would you do?

Thanks, in advance!
