Fear of Lamps


I think I may have gotten over my fear of lamps.  Maybe.  Or it may have just changed into a fear of lampshades.


These two lamps came from Habitat for Humanity Restore.  I went there looking for legs for my dresser and came away with no legs, but with these pretty greenish/aquaish lamps.  The shades need desperate help, since the glue is coming apart and has discoloured the fabric.  I'd like to replace them with drum shades.   But what I'll probably end up doing is just attempting to recover them.  My last lampshade project didn't go very well.


So for the first time ever, our living room has a decent amount of light!  I'll be getting rid of that wobbly old wooden lamp that I shouldn't have bought in the first place.

  1. Ohhh thats such a pretty green! I see what you are saying about the aqua/greenish hue....so pretty. What is the Habitat for Humanity Restore anyway? I guess I could always google it!
