I wasn't really in the market for lamps, the ones we had in our bedroom before were fine, but I made them for next to nothing so it's not like I'd be out a lot of money if I had to replace them. As I was perusing the hobby lobby sale aisle a few weeks ago, these gorgeous lamps caught my eye. The shades were all wrong, disproportionate, the wrong color, etc. but the bases were perfect. I figured they would still be more than I wanted to pay, because to be honest some things on the hobby lobby sale aisle are just marked down to what they should be priced at in the first place, am I right? Anyways, I checked the tag and they were 80% off, making them $20. I quickly put them in my cart while I walked around and thought about it. In my head I was already envisioning them in our room and thinking of where the old ones could go and what lamp shades I could use on them. I called my hubby and he gave me the go ahead. I couldn't wait to get them home and see how they looked.
I love them, the lucite base is one of my favorite parts. Another nice thing is that they are heavy and you can tell they are well made.
See that little purple orchid peeking out? It was an early Valentine's day gift from my hubby. I think it's so cute, I'm just hoping I don't kill it like I do pretty much any plant I come into contact with. I'm going to try the ice cube method and hope it works. Speaking of purple, I'm starting to add plum/purple accents into our bedroom. I've lived with the gray/yellow for a long time (5 years!) and I'm over it. We can't afford to do a major overhaul but I'm hoping introducing a new color, along with these new lamps, will make it feel fresh again. More updates on that to come.
Have you found any lamps you love at Hobby Lobby? It has never been my go to source for lamps, but after finding these and perusing their lighting section I think I might start taking a second look when I'm there.
