Let there be lamps

Our living room has been lacking in the lighting department for a while now. Lamps are just so darn expensive to buy. Okay, maybe not the most expensive purchase in a home.. But I'm cheap and not afraid to admit it. Thankfully, a family friend gave us a set of lamps. Behold..

I take no credit for discovering this wicked-awesome-cool spray-paint. Thomas totally picked it out. I would defiantly recommend this stuff. Very easy to paint with and leaves a really neat effect.. High five Thomas. High five. $14.00 for these and I didn't use a full can. Super. Now I get to do another project..

Lamp shades are from IKEA. $13.00 each.

Thomas had to rewire the lamp slightly to allow the shade to hang properly. He is so handy. Not sure what I would do without him.. but I'm sure it would involve a lot of wine..

Drumroll please..

TA DA.......

What do you think? Personally, I love them. THANKS Sandy! You are the greatest. :)
