This was one of my other freebies. Originaly lamp had a nice shape to it, but I'm not into that ruffle looking lampshade and that color combo. And it happens that my hubby needed a lamp for his night stand.
First what I did was scrubbed it with wet rag really well, then spray it with primer (I had 2 other lamps as well, I like to do things few at a time)
I didn't want to buy new lampshade just ripped off the ruffle thing and covered it with fabric.
