I rearranged our family room the other night with some help from my hubs and his muscles. Does anyone else pronounce it muskles because I was thinking that in my head as I was typing this. Anyways, I love how the family room is coming together with the console behind the couch.
I knew it would look fabulous with two lamps but I don’t have two lamps. Well I should say, I don’t have two lamps that would look right on the console.
Monday I set out to find two lamps and I did find some, at Savers. Savers is like Goodwill and I really like it. They have a fabulous shoe selection but I didn’t find anything in my size this time. I did score these two lamps for $3.99 a piece.
To top off these great finds, when I went up to the register to check out, I received an extra 25% off my purchases so I ended up paying 10.24 or something like that for two lamps and a mirror.
I had a plan for my lamps and it included this:
Here they are now after getting a little makeover:
I was being extra cautious with paper towel just in case the paint wasn’t completely dry. I sometimes get a little really impatient. I was loving my “new” lamps and all they needed were some lamp shades. I hit up Target today and found two shades for $3.24 a piece! Another great score from Target!
Here is the new $3.24 lamp shade on the lamp:
So do you remember these lamp shades from the entryway? They were only $5 a piece one of my scores at Target.
I thought I’d give those a try on the new lamp as well:
My hubby thinks the one on the left is too big for the lamp but I’m really not so sure. I am thinking if I went with the smaller tannish shade I could always paint it, trim it out with dark ribbon or stencil it.
EDITED: Ok wow! Thanks for all the votes and I knew I was right going with #2 as well but just thought I’d see if hubby really was right. (It happens like twice a year. Seriously, even he admits to being wrong pretty much all the time.) I really do love him, especially seeing as he even seemed to care a little bit about the lamp shades. Here they are, in all their beautiful glory, now residing in our Master Bedroom on the coral nightstands!
