On The Hunt For New Lighting

One of the main elements I plan to change in our bedroom is the lighting. Our ceiling fan/overhead light has seen better days, but Mr. Z isn't big on buying a new one until it totally bites the dust. So I rely mainly on table lamps that flank each side of the bed. Do I love the ones I have right now...not really. They remind me of a safarri. They have some sort of leopard-spotted glass parts, and they just aren't really my style. Sure I could paint them and buy a new shade, but I really think I'm in the mood for something new.

I really like the look of this lamp from Tar-jay ( but it's online only, and for the cost of shipping I could almost buy a third lamp. It's not my style to waste money on shipping (unless it's USPS...shout out to my postal-worker-father-in-law).

Ambassador Table Lamp $17.00 (

I also looove the idea of wall mounted sconces that simply plug into an outlet below, like these beauties from overstock.

Old Bronze Finish Pin Up Plug In Lamp $28.99 (

Pin Up Plug In Brushed Nickel Lamp $28.99 (

Looking at these now, I realize I have 3 options, and they could not be more different! Let's sleep on it, shall we? Have a great night!

  1. Those sconces are really pretty and I love the price! I can't believe they're less than $30 each. I'll have to go check them out.
