Oh ... really. You read that title right. I actually switched out some lamps and bought a new table and pillow. If that is not worthy of a blog post, I truly do not know what is.
Jokes aside, these little purchases made a pretty nice difference in my home! Here's what I did.
First, I have come to realize that the lamp on my secretary desk in the dining room is just too small. I love this lamp - it's one that I redid myself. The colors are perfect for my space, but the scale is all wrong. Jamie and I were in Home Goods recently, and I spied this gorgeous mercury glass lamp and it was the perfect size. It was $50. I have given up the illusion that I will find a lamp for $25, and I considered $50 a pretty good deal, especially for such a great lamp with a shade I loved. I bought that sucker. Here is the change, which you might have noticed in the bookshelf pictures from Friday and yesterday.
Much, much better. It will look *even* better when I get around to color to those shelves.
Do not worry about the little lamp though. He moved up to my bedroom. I have a cute little nook in my bedroom where I placed my favorite chair ever - the one I reupholstered all by myself last year. Here it is:
But the corner seemed a little ho-hum, and I thought I could bring in more light and function by adding a small table and lamp. I knew my lamp would be perfect. I found the table at Home Goods for about $35. I also wanted a print on the chair - the blue pillow, while lovely, needed a little punch. I found this pillow at Marshalls for about $12. Love.
I'm so happy with the changes. I need to bring in some art and maybe a mirror on the wall for sure. But for now, these little updates make me so happy. Even on a Tuesday. In February.
See you swoon,
