Saturday morning, Lydia and I jumped in the car to find some yard sales and it was a little disappointing because we weren't seeing signs anywhere. Finally we saw a sign and thinking it was not far down that particular country road, I decided to turn off and find it. Well, we kept driving, and driving and I almost turned around when Lydia spotted a sign for it in the distance. But when we got there we realized it was in an outbuilding of an old church. If Lydia hadn't pleaded to get out, I would have just left. It did not look promising at all!
We went in and the place was dark and dirty and most of it was just junk. I wasn't seeing anything but then Lydia asked if we could go to the back of the building (where it was the darkest and scariest, lol!) and there to my surprise, way up high on an old, dusty cabinet, was this beauty. Love at first sight. =D And for $2, I was happy to take her home.
It's chippy and scratched up, but I really like it this way. And it is the most perfect shade of orangey-red. But who knows, perhaps I will break out the spray paint. I just don't think I can find that perfect of a red though! There's always been a white lamp sitting there but I am loving this fun splash of color.
And now, for the debate of the century (kidding, kidding)...the placement of the red lamp!
It's been bugging me (as are the accessories on that table...it's not working!) and I can't decide which side looks better. They both have their advantages, and I'll be honest and say I'm leaning toward the right, just because I don't have to remove myself from the couch to turn it on, HA! Just keepin' it real! =D
Okay friends, so what's your vote...right or left?
Oh yeah, and would you....
a) paint the lamp (what color?)
b) put the white lamp back and go back to less colorful "color scheme"
c)do you like pops of color?
