Aren't they sexy? For some reason that's the only word that comes to mind about these lamps-- there's something just so deliciously naughty about their curves. And their very naughty price tag-- $1.50 each.
I think they would look great paired with drum shades in this fabric
It comes in orange, too-- Grady would love that. I think I would leave the bases orange-- maybe. Nothing is safe when me and my paint brush get on a roll.
Or this one-- pretty.
I'm really feeling the brass lamps these days, aren't I? I love this one (and my other one) because they are old-- their patina isn't newly minted for big-box sale, but comes from years and years of honest dirt (the cord can't lie-- I haven't seen a cloth cord on a new lamp, ever! I will definitely rewire this one before use!) $5.00 at a thrift store.
A simple, classic shade would be good.
This lamp is my find of the year-- I LOVE it. It's perfect for the boys' room, which is coming together (at least in my head! If you saw the real thing right now you'd be scratching yours, though-- I have some pretty heavy-duty floor painting to go on in there, and I've been waiting for the right time to move them out for a few days.)
This one was so cheap-- $2 at a garage sale. I can't even stand it it is so good.
Not so good-- my crappy kit-lens that came with our camera. Anybody have recs on a good lens for a Nikon D-50 that is good in low light and doesn't cost a fortune? With all this money I'm saving on lamps these days I think it might be time to spring for a new lens!
