You know, a little diversion from the thrifts, restores and junkin haunts. Sometimes I just need to peruse the boutiques and the big box stores. I have been wanting a new lamp for this table in my livingroom.
I found this. I love the kinda retro look of the shade and the base.
The shade looks like a cut velvet.
It looks expensive....yes?
The shade and the crystal base are from Lowe's Home Improvement Store! The shade was $20. and the base was $36. for a total of $56.
I think that I did pretty good. Do you like it?
I think it was a good deal but always in the back of mind is that little voice saying maybe, just maybe I would have found one during my junkin escapades!
I'm working on my built ins and I'm thinking of adding some pink, thanks Amy, Maison Decor! If you do not know Amy, then you are missing out on some great decorating ideas. Be sure and stop by and introduce yourself. She's a real sweetie.
Found the pink plates and the pink depression glass at the thrifts.
I want to thank everyone for giving me the information on this basket. I learned from all of you educated bloggerettes that it is an antique artillary basket used to hold ammunition canisters.
I have sense seen a few on some blogs which have numbers imprinted on them. Sherry at No Minimalist Here used hers in a unique way. Stop by her blog and check it out. She takes decorating ideas to new heights.
I'm linking up to Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrift Tuesdays.
Everyone go out and have a great week!
