A Simple Change

6.16.2011

I truly have a addiction thing for lamps. Just can't help it. When I go in someone's home or a  home tour or in a decor store I am drawn to lamps. Well, the lampshade is a huge part of the overall look, too. Ever since Pottery Barn came out with their burlap shades I have been wanting two for my bedroom lamps. I was waiting for them to go on sale, but I don't thing that is happening any time soon. Probably will now that I went ahead and bought two of them.

This is an old shot of the before since I had already changed the shades and was too lazy didn't want to change them back for pictures.



I bought the cream colored ones instead of the natural burlap. We need as much light in this room as possible at night.

I think it is the texture that I am drawn to plus the fact that they really do put out great light.





I like how my new shades go much better with the shades on this side of the room.


Such an easy change and I love them.
Sometimes you just can't wait for a sale.

Have a super weekend!

  11. Do you think lamp addiction is a Southern thing. I have lamps stashed everywhere...I would stash extras in my car trunk if it wasn't full of treasure that I haven't brought in the house yet. I usually just bring one thing in at a time!!!
    Love those shades...probably a good thing that there isn't a Pottery Barn anywhere near here!!!

  30. Well, sweetie girl, I didn't think this room could get any prettier but..you sure proved me wrong. I LOVE these shades..every thing about them.
    And, yep, these's times when you want something so bad, you don't give a flyin flip how much ya gotta pay for them. These are well worth the price.
