Help me with my ugly-ass lamp post

I'm in the process of buying a townhouse condo, and of course there is a COA with its nosey rules. One rule is that we all have to have the same lamp post in front. It looks kind of like this except white. We can't change the style or the color.

Totally not my style - if it were my choice I'd pick something more like this. I hate "colonial" stuff. I plan on repainting it so at least it looks newer/neater, but what else could I do to make it less depressing? Srs and non-srs answers welcome.
