First Lamp Update

That was quick, right? (Lamp gods are smiling on me this week)
So, we went from this...
To this...Ben said the shade isn't quite long enough - he was promptly asked to leave the room.

A little hasty, and probably not permanent styling. (Little paws abound at Casa G)
Injection of color and tad of drama with height of lamp = goodness
Terrible lighting for impromptu photo session = arrggghhhh

Next up on this vignette: cooler fabric for that slipper chair.

Black shade was a good choice. Love the colors together. I see a lot of ginger lamps at goodwills but never a pretty color one. They are always mauve!!!!

way to go! It's funny because I could picture the whole exchange. So glad that you were able to get something that worked. Of course it turned out beautiful!

I inherited 2 identical lamps from my great aunt. They respond very well to gloss spray paint. So if anyone else sees any similar ones at Goodwill - don't let the color keep you from purchasing them!
