study renovation update #2! i’ve found that really nice, big lamps cost about $250 dollars. so i went on craigslist, and found this ceramic lamp with a nice heavy base. the seller’s title for this ad was “gorgeous bedroom table lamp.” i didn’t challenge her.
so i spray painted it copper (note the beginning of the obsession here). i’d say a pretty dramatic change for pretty inexpensive (lamp = $20, shade = $25). i have to admit, i no longer have the desire to spray paint more things, which is probably a good thing.
*note the smaller lamp behind was one we had stashed in a closet that had a plain white base. the shade for that one was $15.
