This light fixture was once bright brass. I used a two-step process with a rust type paint to update this, then added the shades.
This blurry little table was once a plain stained brown table, and the black paint gave it the needed update. I sanded for a little distressing, and added a glass top.
One more bright brass lamp painted with the rust look.

Have a wonderful day. Jackie
