The bedside lamps in our master bedroom have needed replacing for a LONG time. Yes, I did buy them in the 80's.
We have reading lights in the ceiling, so they have pretty much been functioning as "space keepers."
Every time I looked for new lamps, I got stuck. I felt limited by our iron bed and pine furniture. Yes....it is also time to do something about the pine furniture, but I'm kind of sentimental about it since we have had it for our 25 plus years of marriage.
The great news: I purchased two red lamps at Home Goods (about 40 dollars each) that seemed like they would be perfect if painted... Here is one while it was still red (hence the second "before" picture).
I painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and finished them with dark wax. Well, technically I have finished one of them. I will wax the other one as soon as I finish this post!
So my to do list is now:
1. Finish the second lamp
2. Do the happy dance
3. Look for bigger bedside tables.
