thrifty finds: lamp and curtains


I love the soft light from lamps.  I may have a few.  ;)  My hubby doesn't get it.  "What's wrong with the overhead lights?" he says.  Hah!  He just rolled his eyes when I brought this baby home.

When our mom was visiting for the baby blessing and boy#2's birthday/priesthood ordination, we went thrifting because  that's what we do when we get together.  We found the shade at salvation army and the lamp (full of twenty year old potpourri, seriously, Mom had to pry it out with a knife) at goodwill. I'm planning to spray paint the lamp base and its innards, not the glass.  But I haven't been able to decide on a color.  The gold/fake brass color doesn't go with the lovely shade. Any ideas?



So, clearly I need to clean the shade, but I loved the detail around the top.  It's just neat. And it was just what I needed for a dark corner in my house :)


And so excited about these!  I've been wanting new curtains for my guest room/hubby's office re-do.  I had been thinking about some cute ones at ikea, but I didn't want to make the at least two hour drive, and now they aren't even on the website anymore.  So I found these just as they were being marked down at wally world.  Score, new curtains for $4!  I know just what I'm going to do with them.  Probably navy stripes.  What do you think? 

Found any great deals lately?
