old, uninspiring lamp to exciting fun lamp

picked this up yesterday at Allaire state park. i could see the potential in it.

yay, look at me now! so much brighter and colorful!
i carved "Lemoncholy's" in the base

this is what i glued to the front of the lamp. i got this in an Easter swap a few years ago. I've always just loved it and it was the perfect piece to add for a focal point.
