Here is my end table in the livingroom with the old lamp. Too spindle-y and not enough "GERTH" if ya know what I mean! Something chunky, something a little more...me!
So because the wall behind my couch is chocolate brown, I knew I would need to paint it. I have alot of white and cream accents with my big lantern, newel post, ceiling tins on the wall and my shutter with the flower boxes in them. So it was only right to continue with the cream.
I roughed it up with some sandpaper, and used my Warm Scones sample from Ace Hardware and threw two sloppy coats on this baby! It already had some pits, cracks and knicks in it, so I just made ure that the paint did not fully cover those!
Um! Super happy with it...even without a shade. Gotta find a shade! So yesterday while out snooping around garage sales, I found this pretty little thing! Vintage, retro, original...LOVE HER! I prayed the whole way home hoping it would be the right size for the lamp! But at only $2 there was no way of passing her up!
So whatch think? Is it a right fit? Look at her details! I. love. her. Yes...Its a her! Just the right amount of whimsy with the vintage, rusty, chippy accents in my livingroom...and even the more modern couch!
