New lamp!

I recently purchase the lamp you see below from Lamps Plus, I have been on the hunt for a french candlestick lamp, but on my small budget I just could not afford the higher end lamps :( until I came across this one from Lamps Plus and it was 20% off wooohoooo.....but the lamp shade was not what I wanted, I had my heart set on what is called a shield shade, browsing on ebay I came across what I was looking for and at a reasonable price too.......

Sadly the shade was to I came up with a solution....

By adding a long fringe trim I was able to not only dress up the shade but make it look like the shade belong with the lamp ;-)

On top of the long fringe trim I added a beaded trim......

I really am loving my lamp....but! Yes you read it right there is a'm thinking I might want to white wash the lamp with Annie Sloan white chalk paint, and add gold accents...hummmm....what do you think, I would really like your opinion. thank you my friends....wishing you all a Very Happy Valentines Day.
