Found Treasure


                      

Check out this lamp, I love it, don't you?  Last year I found a retro store located in a small town in Iowa.  My husband and I visited it again recently and ran across these lamps, I knew they'd work perfect in our office. His response was "really, you like them?"  "Of course, trust me" I said.  So we bought them (great deal), cleaned them (he did), rewired them (he did) and taaaa daaa.....Perfect!!!


Unfortunately I couldn't use the original shades, my allergies are too bad to risk the musty smell.  But I found a shade I love at Target, it fits perfect and brings out the gold in the lamp.


Now check out the table the lamp is sitting on.  A great deal at my favorite place...Brass Armadillo.  I don't think it's Heywood Wakefield, the legs aren't rounded but once again I fell in love the minute I saw them.  And just for the record, I cleaned them. :)


I love how the lamps pop against the red wall.  Now to convince my husband we need a "new" mid century couch! 


♥♥♥ I'd like to quickly mention I've opened a store at Zazzle, a great place to find customized products such as plates, phone covers, iPad sleeves, cards, t-shirts, magnets, etc.  I've added some products to my store featuring my designs, if you have any questions leave me a message.  I've also ordered several pieces for gifts, the quality is great and they have quick shipping (I especially love the magnets, mouse pads and plates).
