Soon to be Beautiful lamps!

Just a little old and slightly rusty!

Going to run the glass through the washer and figure out a way to clean all the metal pieces
I dont think these are salvageable.

Research rust removal and decided to go with plain old vinegar. Everything else you buy a the store contains some sort of acid. And we all know that acid is something that would be a great addition to my home. That was sarcasm.
Anyway... the vinegar was PRETTY nasty. It started to bubble almost the second I put the pieces in. Looked like nasty witch's brew.
I'll have to take pics of the pieces now that they are scrubbed. there are waiting for a new coat of primer and silver paint.
