Lamp Love

If there is one thing to know about me, it's this. I love pretty things, I could look at pretty pictures on Pinterest all day long. Another thing about me is that I don't pay (won't) pay a big prices for anything. I am a deal girl. Always on the lookout for something special for a great price. Sometimes I have to wait awhile for these special things that I need (mostly want) to show up. These lamps are my special find. I found one lamp a few years ago and wished that it had a partner but alas it did not:( so I waited and guess what!!! A few months ago while perusing through GW I found it's soul mate. Wow!  That is so amazing, I guess this is my reward for being patient. Always remember good things come to those who wait. About the lamps, these are Baluster lamps because they have the shape of a curvy Baluster like furniture, ie legs of tables and such. If I bought these lamps at Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware they would be very expensive. I also found the 2 matching lampshades at GW, so total price of these lamps is about $10 each, give or take. Paint is Annie Sloan Paris Grey, dark and clear wax finish = Happy Girl:) ...
