~new bedside lamps~

I know what you are thinking.

You are thinking, make up your mind lady!

I know, I know.

I have had so many different lamps here, but I swear,

I love these ones and they will be staying!

I found these at Target.

The best part, they were only $24.99 a piece.

In case you go there looking for them yourselves, the tag reads,
"home, lamp base, beige, 17 1/2" tall, mix and match lighting, and medium"

They have a really cool antique crackle finish~love them!

So of course getting new lamps prompted me to clean up the tops of the tables.


His side is simple.


A photo of us sitting on the dock here at the lake, the lamp, and an alarm clock.


My side has another photo of us, this fun book I got as a gift for my birthday, my favorite candle, and a new canister I just picked up from T.J. Maxx.



I think this canister was around $8.00, such a steal.

It houses my Advil, Tylenol pm, cold medicines, chap stick, lotion, and other things you might need at night but are too lazy to get out of bed to get!

{or at least, I am}




On either side of the bed I have these candle sconces,

another T.J. Maxx purchase years ago.

I think they were green, so I spray painted them cream to match the room.
A few weeks ago I made these initial canvas'.

I painted a 5x7 canvas black and then painted on our initials and a crown in gold.
When I was done, it looked a little too "new" for my taste so to age it up a bit I simply smeared chalk around the edges.


Hope you all are having a fabulous Friday!
xoxo

I've done the same thing this year...changed lamps a hundred times LOL I finally found the perfect match for my bedroom - at Hobby Lobby! They were $90 each, but I got them when the lamps were 50% off! LOVE the change! Have a great weekend! ~Destiny

I am impressed, wow those lamps look like they are a lot more expensive..and that canister is beautiful..what a steal on both! Goes to prove it doesnt' have to be expensive to look good and thats becoming truer every day. (I guess, hate to admit it, mostly due to China).....anyway new to blogging but loving it. Please check out my new blog about the building of our new home and my love for home decor!

Love the idea of keeping all those things in a canister on the night stand {I too am too lazy to get outta a nice warm bed to get those}
I am going to look for a canister for mine now!

Thanks for the inspiration,
Dolly

So crazy that I was just at Target today looking for lamps to go in my oldest daughters room and looked at these exact lamps! Great minds think alike! PS - thanks for the bedside canister idea! Gonna have to do that for myself.

I too keep all those medicaments and similiar stuff at my night stand, while my fiance keeps only an alarmclock and his phone... :-)

Nice choice! The neutral color of the lamp balanced the shades and hues in the room.
