Big ‘Ole Lamp

By | Uncategorized | 23 Comments



When you see a 3′ tall hexagon lamp made of gold (faux, of course) for less than $20, there is only one approved reaction: PURCHASE IMMEDIATELY!

And that’s exactly what I did. I found this huge gold lamp at Home Style here in Covington and brought it home. I had an open spot on the little cabinet next to my bed. I’ve made over this corner so many times. The last version featured my plant of steel (which now lives in the living room, per the photo shoot folks) which left a spot for a very tall item.

Never in a million years did I think that very tall item would be a giant gold lamp from the 70’s, but here we are.

The shade was a sale find at Home Goods. I bought the largest shade in the clearance section, which rings in at 20″. The shade really needs to be white, but for $20 and the size I need, this tan version is A-OK with me. One day I will cover the shade in white fabric, but I have to admit: the tan is growing on me!

You may remember me posting the pic below on Instagram. Suge is placed for scale which I’m sure he totally appreciated. I’m posting the Instagram pic below, but if you can’t see it, here’s the direct link.

I love how the new-to-me lamp works with my gold lamps on the dresser across the room. Like they were made for each other.

In other news and while we’re on the topic of this room, that copper overhead light is going to be replaced by a fan. Function wins over form (Aaron is so thrilled!). We’re fan people and our current set-up (an old dusty box fan leaning on a plastic chair) is just not working out. Bye bye light. You’re pretty but you don’t provide a good breeze.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Be back Friday!
