Please don't worry, I am not leaving this lamp here to clash with the couch, I just wanted to see how it looked on this table in the living room. I was in a flea market over the weekend, and lamp fever struck again! I must really learn to control this problem. I had to take several of the others I have to storage a couple of weeks ago.
I think this table is going to look pretty good with the other items on it. I just got the radio last week (I'm an eBay addict when it comes to radios), and the 1959 copy of Better Homes and Gardens looks right at home. The white and gold planter that I found last week will look great on that little shelf, especially once I get a Philodendron started from a cutting I took and planted in it.
This one is going to end up on my night stand in my bedroom. I was pleased with myself, because when I bought this one, I actually knew where I wanted to put it! The lamp shade has a little staining on the top, but overall, it's a great piece. Simple and attractive.
I think that the teal / turquoise color will really go well with the drapes that I have hanging in my bedroom. I am hoping that I will prefer it over the copper I Dream of Jeannie bottle style modern metal lamp from Walmart that I have in there right now.
Just so you know - this is the lamp that normally lives on this table...I think the scale of it is much better for the space.
Have a great Monday - today's supposed to be our first day back from break, but snowfall this weekend is giving me an extra day off!
