I openly admit that I am not a fan of brass. I can think of several occasions that I have found a great MCM piece that I have passed on because it's brass finish, and I have even spray painted one light fixture silver to try and hide it's brass color. The good folks over at Amodernu have shown that there is a better way. With about $10 of stripper and a whole lot of elbow grease they were able to turn this brassy arch lamp into a beauty. Head over to Amodernu for all the details.
