I feel like topping this post with a bunch of x's and o's cause that's how in love I am with my new lamps.
Here's the living room with one lamp:
And here it is with two new ones:
I've had these lamps for several weeks now but up until a couple days ago they were stashed in my closet. I was planning to use them in the dining room, but I decided I want something different for in there. I've seen this gourd style sell for over $200 a pair, so I was super excited to score these two on clearance at Target for less than $15 a piece.
I love the glass one that I had up here before, but it was getting lost up against all the art on the wall.
I wanted something that wouldn't compete with the wall, but that also could hold it's own. And I really really was wanting a pair of something up here. So these two lamps were the perfect solution. I just took the gray shade off the glass lamp and then bought another one for the other lamp. (The shades are from Target also.)
Seriously, have you ever seen a lamp with such gorgeous ribs?
And just look at that glow...
Here's another before and after- I just love the difference these two are making:
I'm swooning guys. Swoon-ing. Who knew thirty bucks could buy so much happiness? I know they're just simple lamps but they are so perfect right here that I can't shut up about them.
This wall is really coming together; it's looking so good now that the mantel area is looking really blah in comparison (the remote control and sippy cup aren't helping).
I've got plans to step things up a little in that part of the room, but for now I'm just happy the striped table is looking so stylish with it's new lamps!
btw...I'm a new contributor at the blog for my sponsor DecoraUSA. My first post is up today and it's about a dining room look that I love- and will be doing in my own dining room! Read it here.
