A light topic...

I can't help it. I love lamps! A pair of lamps is more appealing to me than a pair of shoes. Now don't get me wrong. I like shoes, too. But lamps...that's where it's at for me.


Dining Room
Breakfast Room

Tall, skinny, short, chunky, silver, gold, new or old. They all work for me. I have lamps that I had to save up for and some that were just a few dollars. One of my favorite lamps cost $6 at a local thrift store. I spray painted it with Kilz spray primer and then added the apple green color I had been wanting in my red dining room. The lamp's shade is from Target. I looked online for something similar, but everything this large was well over $100. I felt pretty good about my $40 redo.

My most recent pair was given to me by my great aunt and uncle. I bet the lamps are 30 years old. They are really heavy brass and I love the contrast of the pretty curves and the square base. 

Now I just need to decide what room will value them the most. Bedroom or living room? 
I'm also not sure about the shades. Can't decide if black, white, or cream will work best. What do you think? Enjoy your Saturday!!
