I heart lamp

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!!

TGIF, y'all!!

  1. I'm in the process of hand-painting a set of lamp shades for the lamps in my living room. I acquired them in the same way... my aunt updated. I hope mine come out as beautifully!
