I LIKE BIG LAMPS AND I CANNOT LIE

I made my lamp shades quite a while ago, but I absolutely detest the lamp bases that they are on.  They are long, skinny and just plain boring.


I found one on sale at Walmart and picked it up.  It is really cute, but, of course, I couldn't find another like it.


Since I don't really care if my bases match, I have been looking and looking for something that I love.  I have to admit, it is almost as hard as finding a comforter.  Plus, they can be quite expensive!!

Enter 1/2 price Friday at Goodwill.  What do you think of this beaut that I got for $3.53?


I busted out the ORB spray and went to town.


Exactly what I was looking for and cheap to boot!



Much better than the skinny minny that I had, but now I am wondering if it is too short??  I'll live with it for a while and decide after that.

In the meantime, I found this


and this



Fall must definitely be on it's way, as I feel the creative juices flowing again.  Stay tuned!
