New lamps!

Hi all,

I told you in the last post that I would be posting pics from my trip last week ….it’s been a week already! :’( …. however I haven’t been feeling that well this week and I have a lot of pics to choose from so I’ll be working on it this weekend.

Instead I want to show you some lamps that were in box #4 at my cousin’s! Thought you’d never find out about the mystical box #4 huh? lol..
This is a pic of the lamps that I’ve been using for several years now. I actually think I bought them when my daughter was a baby and she’s almost 20, so I guess they don’t owe me anything!

I never really liked how small they looked above that big couch but this is a really tiny house and the wall space you see is what you get, no room for any kind of end table. Say hi to Daisy!

They’re not exactly prim are they??

This is what I have now! The lamps are so long I have to re-think what I put above them.. it’s a work in progress.


Here’s a few closeups… notice how scared Daisy is! lol.. poor dog, she was terrified of them!

I think it looks much better now and the lamps don’t look so lost. The lighting is better as well and I love the pattern that the punched tin leaves on the walls when they’re lit up. What do you think?? Any ideas on what I can put above? I do have my wall hanging from Lex but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.
Have a great weekend!

  3. I love them lamps!...those are exactly what I am looking for to put in my bedroom!...Don't really have the room for table lamps so a wall lamp will be the best in there...LOVE THEM!
