I hate overhead lighting. For some reason it gives me headaches. During our big move I left behind a couple of old lamps and now I’m very much regretting it. We only have 4 lamps. One in the living room, one in the office, and two in the bedroom. So I have been in search of new lighting solutions. I attempted to hang large bulb string lights in hopes that my living room would look like a beautiful parisian cafe. Well it turned out looking trashy and they started falling down after the first day. So I decided to search for a cute little lamp. Well, today I found the perfect one at Walmart on sale for $5 and I snatched it right up!
First, I pulled 2 pieces of fabric from my remnant collection. Then I put my new lamp in place to choose a fabric.
I am also loving that the inside of the shade is reflected on the glass of the table. This table is one of my favorite pieces of hand-me-down furniture in the house. My grandmother bought this table for her parents in the 1940’s with her first paycheck from her first job. It’s a beautiful table that cost her only $5. Nowadays, this table would be much more expensive because of the intricate details.
