In addition to their practical purpose of providing light, lamps can be fun accents to any room. I've seen so many beautiful lamps, in shops, thrift stores, garage sales and flea markets, I have to stop myself...I think it's an addiction!
Here are a few of my lamps, starting with the large bottle lamp.
I found this large "rippled glass" bottle at a garage sale for $2. Right away, I knew what it was going to be.
A beachy lamp!
Here's what I started with:
I love the rippled glass, it reminds me of the ocean.
I already had the old Ikea wicker lamp shade.
I love how it looks.
I wish I'd taken a before picture 'cause it was UGGGGLY! Right away I could visualize it, a little cleaning, new lamp shade and replace the 1970's flowers with sand, starfish and a little beach glass.......And voila!
Isn't it pretty?
It's funny how something this simple can make you smile every time you turn it on! :)
Here's another one I got for a whopping $4 from a garage sale.
|And last, but not least, my quirky little phone lamp! I found this one at a flea market for $2.|
So, I started dialing 1...2...the light came on!!!
So, to turn it on/off you have to dial 2!
How cute is that? Love it!
Hope you enjoyed my little ramblings about lamps!
