They were all gold and very outdated. I painted them base of the lamps then put some fun trim on them to bring personality. I painted the lamp shade for my son's room as it was a dirty beige color and was a little ripped. This way the paint covered it. I used an old pair of jeans to glue on as the trim for the lamp.
My daughers lamp, I took ribbon that I bought on sale and glued it around the edge. For about $30 I was able to buy 3 lamps and transform them into fun lamps to match my children's room.
