What to do with this lamp I grabbed at the Goodwill yesterday, I could tell by looking at it it was well made, I quickly Googled and found out, it seems to be from a high quality long standing Lamp company....


Leave original and or change lamp shade or change the pewter!?!

    I have some Quiozel lamps and I can tell you that they're very expensive. Because of their value, I wouldn't change anything. If you don't like the colors, sell the lamp on Ebay or Craig's list and then buy a cheap lamp that you can paint.

      TY everyone, I Actually was hoping to hear good news as a slight newbie in this area, that my find was a good one. I will be replacing the very cream dated look of the shade, but that is it! I love the mix of metal and wood, I scoured the store for a second 1! Thanks everyone!!!!

    Unless you want to sell to make a few dollars then go ahead and make it what you want. I would keep the pewter and paint the wood, the shade depends on how well you like it for your decor. I enjoy updating pieces with paint, there are so many techniques available now.

    Don't do anything to the lamp . If you must do something get a shade you can make more to your liking.

    The lamp might be worth more at re-sale if you keep the original lamp shade. Can you wrap it and store it somewhere and use a new shade of your own liking? (Replacing parts usually impacts the value in a negative way).

    No, no, no, don't change anything about the lamp except maybe the shade. I love the wood and the pewter base. It has great style. (Keep the original shade in case you might want to sell it at a later date. ) Nice find!
