No, not my husband or kids but this bright thing! And yes, I know you have seen the shade already but she has to be viewed in all her splendidness on a stand. This was a heavily painted, turned wood standard lamp stand. I lightly sanded it , primed and re-painted. I kinda like it with old dents & chips still visible under the new paint. I don't want my pieces to look "shiny-new" just updated & ReVamped! The shade was my own creation, over a couple of nights!
