lamps my way

A couple months ago I found these lamps at Home Goods for $29.99 (each). I love the mercury glass base, but not crazy about the plain gray drum shade. So, since then, I've been searching for a new, better, more fashionable shade. Do you know how hard it is to find a store that ONLY sells lamp shades?! I went to all the thrift stores in town and it's a combined deal: Lamp + Shade. Garden Ridge sold only shades, but poor selection. I then looked online. I settled with this burlap drum shade from Pottery Barn



Much better, don't you agree?!

Burlap is really IN right now, and I love it. I love the natural look, and how it can still be "dressed up!" 


  1. What an improvement!! Great choice on the new shades :)

  2. Wow I am impressed I love the lamp base AND the burlap!! Such a fab choice!

  3. I love that lamp base!! You did a great job! Makes me want to redo every lamp in the house! Ha! Okay, maybe not, because it would take too much time, but that looks awesome! Love it!

  4. So cute! Gotta love PB!!!

    I dunno how I found your blog but I see you're from Kentucky and most KY girls are pretty legit...and hysterical...and LOVE LOVE talkin' about the Blugrass State!
