~I ♥ Standard Lamps~
My Mum has a talent at sniffing out great things on Ebay and this week she managed to find me a Standard Lamp (minus the shade) for less than a tenner. They're much sought after at the moment and I've been on the lookout for a cheap one for a while. Sod's law that when things get popular, the prices and bids go mad on auction sites and I didn't want to spend much. It was a collect-only item, just 10 minutes down the road. This weekend I'll be giving it a coat of paint from leftover F&B eggshell that's already in the garage, as I can't afford the Annie Sloan paint I would like.
I will now be scouring the charity shops and car boot sales for a swanky vintage shade that I can tart up. I'm thinking down the lines of these shades by Leeds-based Two Material Girls.
