Easy Retro/Industrial Lamp Makeover

Here's a makeover I LOVE!
1) Old lampshade (the kind that has metal ribs.)
Remove all the fabric...
 2) Lamp base with interesting design.
 (Don't worry about the finish....We're gonna fix that...)
3) Spray Paint!!!!!!!!! Glossy.
I used Valspar Paint and Primer in One.

 I taped off the socket and cord
and then proceeded to spray paint...
 ...Everything:  Harp, finial, lampshade frame, and the lamp base .
(This is such instant gratification, I can't tell ya!)
To complete, 
use a vintage style Edison lightbulb.
This baby ROCKS.
I'm not sure I can bear to sell it....
Okay, I can.
