A While Back...
My friend Kristi and her hubs moved into a new house a few blocks away from our humble abode.
In the process she, like the rest of us, wanted to get rid of a lot of clutter.
I was helping her move when I spotted this pair of lamps. They were brown, hideous, and Kristi was ready to trash them. I asked if I could keep them.
You know, one man's trash...
You see, I had been looking for a great pair of nightstand lamps. Normally, I'm not one to go all matchy-matchy. Rather, I like to find unique pieces that coordinate with each other. But I knew that if I found some really great lamps, with great shape and scale, I would be willing to try a matching pair.
Red was to be the chosen color.
2 lamps with oversized shades = FREE
1 can primer/2 cans red spray paint = $19
Fabulous lamps = One less thing that I have to look for/register for
And, the best part... it's a PAIR of cherry red lamps!!
