Today I am sharing my latest thrifty find and how I made it work in our home.
My friend, Anneke, has a great blog called This, That, & Life. She is always finding things on Craigslist and making them awesome. I’ve done the Craigslist thing to sell a few things and buy a few things but don’t go on there often. Anneke influenced me to look on it after I read yet another one of her Craigslist praises.
I am happy to report I have solved another lighting issue in our home and my love affair with gold continues.
These wall lamps were listed for FREE. I immediately saw the potential and jumped on THAT. Obviously they needed some tweaking though.
I had just ordered this chandy and these shades for my living room. (both purchased from overstock.com)
So, since these spaces are adjoining I decided to go the same route with the wall lamps. I found gold-lined black shades in-store at the Home Depot and they are a good match to my chandy shades.
I love a good inexpensive home project and this one only cost me the price of the shades and the napkin rings. Two wall lamps with cord covers for under $20–$18 dollars to be exact!
I love how they turned out. The napkin rings were clearanced at Target after the holidays for $.88 each. Just by adding a little detail and new shades they work in this space.
I played around with the decor. I don’t know if it is Downton Abbey that influenced this look or our anniversary trip and the beautiful cottage we stayed in, but I am really feeling English inspired decor right now!
I slip-covered the bench cushions in an old tartan I picked up at a flea market. The colors are perfect.
It’s a little Equestrian, a little masculine, and a little whimsical and I am diggin’ it!
Are you feeling the Downton Abbey vibe in home decor lately? This makes me wish I had a horse and grounds to go riding on. Oh, to be Lady Mary!
