And about my crush on Home Goods lamps?
Remember Rule #1—the one about PATIENCE?
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been updating the look of our family room, refining the black and cream base, and adding my beloved red and turquoise accents.
I added BIG ART above the sofa.
Then I started to hate these lamps. They were really cool and kind of expensive, back when I thought you had to spend lots of money to have a pretty house.
I liked the wrought iron look and the parchment shade. But now they look kind of lodgey to me. Guess I should’ve known that when I bought them at Eddie Bauer, huh?
I’ve been looking for “new” lamps, and TRYING REALLY HARD to be patient.
Oh, those beautiful lamps at Home Goods make a girl’s life difficult.
Finally, I found these at the Goodwill store.
For four dollars each. The cute kid I already had.
I bought two drum shades at Walmart for $15 each.
The lamps each got two coats of Heirloom White.
I covered the shade with leftover fabric from my drop cloth drapes.
Now I have this!
I’m in love. Almost. NOW I see that I need to finish the raw edge of the fabric inside. Oops.
At least y’all aren’t worried about me being perfect, now, are ya?
