Good Weather? Let's Paint!

I've been working on projects over the summer. Recently I scraped, sanded and painted the iron café table someone found for me last year. It's a glossy black and it turned out fine (although if I had the inclination I would have sanded the surface much more).

Before the bitter weather sets in I'm knocking off a few more items. There's the stool I found out in the trash. It was wooden and filthy, but after scrubbing and sanding and given some coats of glossy Royale Red it's coming along. Next will be a really old lamp. I've already buffed the metal parts, but I don't know how to clean the plastic cord back to white. I'll be shopping for a turquoise blue to spray on the ceramic base. I've never liked the colour blue it is now. I considered red, but...I'm doubtful the base suits an "earthy" look.

I had a lamp eerily similar to that at one point, growing up.

It looks light an eighties lamp, doesn't it?

It looks like an 80's lamp that was an imitation of a '20's lamp. Those lines are very this-is-what-we-think-art-deco-looked-like.
