New Lamps in the Dining Room

Hello everyone!

I know

I know

I know

Here is my dining room...............again!  

And it still has Christmas decor in it.

I've decided I will take my decor down on New Years Day.  That's what I used to do and it just feels right doing it that way this year.  It's sort of a great day to start anew.  So, that means you'll just have to look past the Christmas decorations in this room for now.

I had some Christmas money to spend, so I decided to buy a pair of matching lamps for the sideboard in my dining room.  Ever since I hung the narrow trumeau mirror in here, I felt it needed some tall lamps to anchor each side.  


I wanted a chunky wooden lamp with a muted color shade.  I think these fit the bill.


These lamps came from Home Goods.  However, they originally came with very plain white shades.  I wasn't fond of them, so I replaced  them with these burlap shades from Target. 

Here is a close up of the distressed wood base.


These were just what I was looking for!

Here is how they look when turned on.


When I remove the greenery from Christmas, I will probably set my distressed pedestal in between the lamps and add some candles.  

It will be fun to set up the house again with a new arrangement.

Hope you all have a great New Years Eve tomorrow night!

See you in 2015!

Don't you just love it when you find what you are looking for. We have Homesense here in Canada like your Home Goods. I always find bargains there!
Can't wait to post about my new living room furniture, waiting for my new Laptop Lanova. Our friend who services our machines sells them and she's away til the new year!

HG is one of my fav places to get lamps but if they don't have good shades changing them is always an option. They look perfect! Have a Happy New Year Kelly!

Pretty! I spent my day taking down decorations, too. The tree is still up, though I plan to tackle that tomorrow. I love the new lamps! Happy New Year!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Wow! You really did find exactly what you were looking for! I love your new lamps. I was just looking at some of my lamps and thinking they're too small. I really like the size of yours. Target is great for shades. I've found several there too. Happy New Year!

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Your lamps are beautiful. I need new lamps for the living room but I'm too cheap to buy them. I keep thinking I'll find some thrifted ones to paint etc.
I never tire of your dining room so.... it's all good!
