Lamp Makovers

Welcome to another Style Feature Saturday, hosted by Perfectly Imperfect.

Several years ago I bought a set of three matching lamps that were a funny greenish color.  As seen below.


I intended to paint them the with the very popular ORB paint, but after much searching, I was not able to find it.  I did find a dark brown called Espresso, I painted them with that, but they were just too brown for my liking.  I took them outside again and just bare gave them a whiff of black spray paint.  It gave them a bit of depth and I am liking them much better now.  Oh, and I found a different shade for the tall lamp and have purchased one shade for one of the others and I love it, so I shall go back to Walmart and get another one of those.  

What do you think, is it better?
I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful, sunny weekend!
