You know, the one you can't even see against the wall color? I thought that since we had the bronze chandelier, I needed to buy a bronze lamp. I also thought I needed a small lamp for the small table. The cage-style lamp was the only one I kind of liked, so I brought it home without totally loving it and it's been bothering me ever since. It's not ugly, it just doesn't look good in this area. And the linen shade looks dirty next to our white trim. So, I'm going to sell it on Craigslist, as I don't have any other place for it. (Wanna buy it from me?)
Of course, I have already purchased the replacement. Shaun and I were picking up a rug pad at TJ Maxx when I saw this gem in the clearance racks. He tried
covering my eyes and dragging me to the checkout telling me I didn't need it, but I wouldn't budge.
I've never purchased anything this funky before, or anything shaped like a fruit for that matter, but I instantly knew this was just the fun punch of white that my entry needed to break up the teal walls and dark wood console. And it was just $23, which meant less than $20 with his discount! I'm totally marrying this man for his TJ Maxx discount! No, really, that's a wine-induced joke. I actually love him without the discount. Ahem. Where was I?
Oh yeah, I love this lamp in here! The shade is large and in charge, and a nice crisp white that looks so much better against the stair molding. Here's another blah before:
And the cool and pineapple-y after:
I also switched around the accessories. I kept the jar full of wine corks because, uh, we're winos and need a place to put them all, and added these little Crate and Barrel plates for our keys.
**Staging alert!** Yeah, those key-holders would be great if we actually came in the front door, but that doesn't happen, so they probably won't stay there. Do you like the change? If so, say it with me now, "I LOVE LAMP!"
(That one is for you, Micah!)
