I have a thing for lamps. If I find a cool or funky lamp for a good price, it's almost as if I have an innate need to bring it home with me. Two or more years ago while I was at Goodwill, I came across this awesome baluster lamp.
I initially thought that I would paint it to get rid of the turquoise parts. After it sat around for a while, the turquoise began to grow on me and I decided to leave it as is ... and then I put it in the basement with the rest of my treasures, since I didn't really have a place to use one lamp.
A few weeks ago, at a different Goodwill in another town, I found this lamp.
It's the same lamp! Looks like you're seeing double doesn't it?
Now that I have a pair of these beauties, I knew exactly what to do with them. I figured that they would be perfect on the dresser in our master bedroom.
The shades on these lamps are ones that I already had on hand. They are totally the wrong size and color, and they're borderline worn out, but they do the job for now.
One day I will think about what to put on that big blank wall ... eventually.
