The Lamp Shuffle Continues........

Hello everyone!

Well, after moving some lamps around recently, my husband said he wasn't getting enough light from the lamp being behind the sofa instead of beside it.  So.................I made some more changes.  

The lamp behind the sofa, went into the foyer.


I'm really happy with it in here since the foyer has such high ceilings.  The lamp is large so it fits the room well.  

Then, I stumbled across some pretty grey herringbone design lampshades at Target.  And they were on sale!  
Here is a close-up of the shade.



Pretty right?  

So, I bought two of them and figured out which lamps were going to get them.  I placed one on a lamp in my sitting room.



I'm liking it!

  And the other one went in the family room,
back on the side table, so my husband (who needs reading glasses soon......shhhh) can see what he's reading now.  LOL!




Oh.......what's that?  You see something new in here?  Why yes, I was going to mention that as well.  Actually, it isn't new.  I redid this little corner of the room by bringing in my vintage hay rake and draping some grain sacks out of the rack on the wall and placing a grain sack over the back of the chair.   

You know how that domino effect goes don't you?  





I'm loving being able to use the rack in so many different ways.  Remember it once held plates (for about a day or two) ?  LOL!  

Well, I'm off to visit my sister for a belated birthday get together today. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty! You know, I'm just terrible about putting a lamp in one spot and never thinking of where else it could go. Smart of you to shuffle.

What a beautiful herringbone shade, Kelly ... I've never seen one like that! I love how you switched your lamps around ... they're so versatile and look awesome in their new spots!

For effect you should cover a book in fabric and stencil on your own title of 50 shades of grey and leave it on the coffee table.

Kelly, OMGosh, I love herringbone and looked at those shades at Target, yesterday, but didn't get them. They look sooo good on you lamps and with your decor. I was looking for a new shade for my alabaster lamp. I love how it looks on yours, and with the one on the pine chest.
