I am in Deep Trouble...

FIRST OFF...

I have searched HI and LO for this wondrous SPRAY PAINT
and there is none in this whole town....NONE... 

Walmart can order it for me...no shipping charge if it goes to the store
and I come and pick it up...

THEN THE BIG NEWS IS....


$15.00  per can....



and I am going to need at least two cans...
$4.00 lamps plus $15.00 for 2 lamps......do the math, bj.
That's $38 for the pair......NO WHERE can I buy lamps two for $38....
but STILL....I'm trying SO HARD to be frugal here....!!!

Now, keep in mind....... Gray and white throw....on a gray sofa...


 I have gray shades just like these...
so...
what would be wrong with spraying my lamps WHITE..????
(MUCH cheaper..)
sitting on BLACK TABLES...

but would white METAL lamps look good...???







OOO....this trying to be thrifty can drive a girl to DRINK...


xxx000xxx, bj




8/27
I just received my POTTERY BARN catalog and guess what....???
it is full of BRASS...
BRASS LAMPS
BRASS CANDLESTICKS
BRASS LIGHTING
If POTTERY BARN SAYS "brass is back"....well....I believe it  !  

and...as I work around here...things are changing...
may not even NEED lamps...I am spending waaay too much time
looking at PINTEREST
and IT keeps changing my mind.

  1. Pinterest has a way of making us feel like we ought to always be doing "MORE"... when sometimes "LESS" is just right. I'm sure whatever decision you make it will be absolutely perfect :) xo

  2. You always make me smile!! A really good cookie (preferably soft, chewy, and red velvet) can fix anything! I have complete faith in your sense of style. I can't wait for you to share what you choose. :)

  3. I have taken the easy way out using/ bring back my old Brass. But there are a few pieces I just don't want to use again...visual fatigue! Take a nap and see if that clears your head! Ha, sheila E

  4. I have a couple cans of the paint in my basement. I know it's expensive, but the look is really cool! I know you will make whatever you do beautiful!

  6. Whatever you choose will be just right! I've seen many metal lamps painted white. They are nice, but you need to have what makes your heart sing!
