I am still super excited about my new lamps I scored at Goodwill a few weeks ago. Perhaps too excited.
I went in on a whim, not thinking I’d find anything.
Then I found two of these lamp bases:
Not only were they matching lamps, which is rare enough to find at GW, but the color (a grayish blue) was perfect for my newly painted bedroom and I loved the shape (they remind me of Sara’s lamp she found awhile back). PLUS they were 50% off so I scored both bases for $7!
I bought the shades new at Lowe’s for $15 each. I highly doubt I’ll ever be lucky enough to find two, nice matching lamp shades at GW. (The plastic is still on the shades in these photos… I was testing them to see if they worked and I wanted to compare them to shades at Target. Target has similar ones for $13 but I decided that the effort to return these two and buy new ones from Target wasn’t worth the $4 I would save on the shades. Gas is too expensive.)
I also bought a handful of frames (most of which were also 50% off that weekend) that I plan on using in a gallery-style display in my bedroom. That little project is still in the works…
