Here is my new $20 floor lamp!
I had been wanting a floor lamp to go next to 'my spot' on the lounge for a while. And I knew the look I was after. So I searched on ebay and found this one...
'Fantastic Retro Vintage Teak Mid Century Floor Lamp' but I forgot to bid and it ended and I was disappointed. It went for $49.95 + postage so I knew the rough price I'd be needing to pay for the base.
Anyway, literally the next day I was driving down the road taking Will to little school and what did I see lying on the grass out the front of a house... two floor lamp bases!
So on the way back I pulled over and checked them out and what do you know one of them was almost exactly like the ebay one I wanted. It wasn't broken or scratched or dirty or anything so I grabbed it and put it into the back of my car (I love my Outback station wagon for getting all my neighbourhood finds).
I put a bulb in and carefully check that it worked and it did!!! (I shielded my eyes so that if there were sparks and bangs I'd be 'protected') hehehehe.
Then I went to Target and bought an off white suede look lamp shade for $20. And here it is!
It's so cosy sitting in the lamp light.
Have you had any bargain finds lately????
Have a great Monday,
