A wee bit of change

The finishing of the guest BR marches on. I can't imagine paying any more than $50 for a lamp. I'm always floored by the prices of designer lamps in the shelter mags. RIP-OFF. So off to the thrift I went. I uncovered this ginger jar gem that was a shade of blah brown and covered in a thick layer of dust. A coat or two of Krylon Ivy Leaf brought it back to glorious green life.

Its partner in crime had an interesting shape and just needed another few coats of the same paint to make it look like a new piece. The shades are from Ollie's, a bargain store. They are originally basic shades from Target. I think they were $5/ea.

So here's where I am. Not sure about the bedding/duvet situation. It's OK but I'm not in love. I'm thinking maybe a print might be more enticing? I have so many unused duvets, so I feel like I shouldn't buy another. Maybe a monogram would be cool?

I love how they do not match, but you kept the color to make them go together! I agree. Lamps are just too expensive now a days
