We wanted a unique lamp on our balcony (as the constructor didn't provide one) so we decided to rehabilitate one old gas lantern and convert it to electric lamp.
it took some time to find one, but it was worth it.
Step 1: Divide Et Impera
I disassembled and washed it with dish washing liquid and sponge.
Step 2: Get Rid of Old Paint
I used a drilling machine and some brass brushes to clean it thorough.
And of course protection...
Step 3: Assemble It Back and Mount It in Place
Step 4: Enjoy!
I might paint it in black in the future and I'll update the i'ble.
Step 5: Update!
Painted and final version.
