Decor Dilemma: Lamps

So, I am having a bit of a dilemma.  And I need your help.  I have been indecisive about these lamps for months now.  It's time to figure this out. 

I found these lamps at thrift store for only $5 each.  They are vintage, heavy brass.  I loved the shape of them and the fact that they are gold.  They only shades I could find for them were these slightly tapered, cream ones from Lowe's.  I wasn't quite sold on them yet in this space. 

Then, I added some faux bois fabric in turquoise and the mirrors behind them. Better. But I'm still not quite sure they work here.  

I have thought about spray painting them and moving them onto the buffet in the dining room or our master bedroom.  With different lamp shades, of course.  But I haven't been able to bring myself to paint them.  I really love the mirrors in this location and have debated getting slightly shorter lamps like this one:

via \\ Z Gallerie
 Or this one:

via \\ Target

Or this one:

I know that I want to keep the brass lamps and use them somewhere. 

Should I leave them be?

Should I paint them and use them elsewhere and buy different lamps for the living room?  

What do you guys think?
