We renovated our lounge room a year ago and I've been looking for the perfect table lamp ever since. Mr. Fairy Bread doesnt like the lights on when he watches TV and I hate sitting in the dark. A lamp is a compromise on both our parts.
I finally found it last weekend - at a garage sale.
Brought it home, washed some grubby marks off it, added it to a base I already had that I wasn't using and I have a gorgeous lamp for the side table.
It cost me one dollar. I love it when that happens.
