    New Lamp in the Bathroom

    I have a new lamp in the bathroom.  I know, not where you would normally put one, but I love this look. Plus, they make great night lights for company! I’ve been looking for a new one for awhile for one of the guest bathrooms. But let’s face it, it hasn’t been at the top of my list. This was the old lamp. It had definitely see better days. The shade was wrinkled. It was too tall. What was I thinking when I put on that trim? I found the cutest lamps at Hobby Lobby in the sale isle. It was perfect.

We saw A LOT of movies.  I have drooled over swing arms lamps ever since. When it came time to decide on the guest room design, a swing arm lamp never even crossed my mind.

    Turquoise Lamp

    Y’all know I live in “manland” here at the castle. Well, except for Sadie the black lab and Firehydrant the cat, but I don’t think they care about the decor. For the most part I try to keep a balance on my decorating style, not too manly and not too girly – it keeps everyone happy. Awhile back I redecorated the game room and I recently added  a cute turquoise lamp to it that I can’t wait to share with you! When I redecorated I used a lot of my existing accessories, including a lamp I already had. The first lamp I used was a candlestick lamp on the bar… but…
