I really had trouble deciding what to buy last week at the Vintage Market Place. All the booths were wonderful and I could have happily come home with many different things from each booth. Unfortunately my budget required me to be selective. I kept going back to these lamps, and ultimately decided one large purchase would make more of style statement in my home than a few smaller things. Pam also made a large purchase, which we will share with you as soon as she gets some pictures.
I opted not to buy a shade at the same place, in an attempt to save a little money. In the end I saved $15 in exchange for a bit of time. I had trouble finding a shade that was tall enough to cover the lamp hardware. I bought the trim and matching tassel at Hobby Lobby and glued the trim to the bottom of the shade using a hot glue gun. The tassel is wrapped around the base of the hardware and also adds a little extra detail. The lamp was made from an old porch post.
Thanks for stopping by!
