Can we talk ugly lamp?
Queen Elizabeth-hat ugly.
Tada! I bought this glass lamp a while ago for just a few dollars at a tag sale, and doesn’t it have the ugliest lampshade ever? Shudder.
I want to bust out laughing when I see that lamp shade. It’s so ugly, it’s kind of pretty, right?
But I liked the base — glass and crystal lamps are really popular right now, and I like the vintage touch of this one. I knew this would look cute with a different lamp shade.
The other lamp base is from a Meyda Tiffany lamp like this one. I bought it for $3, and I’m thinking of spray painting it white.
I recently picked up these two lamp shades to see if I liked the look of them for the two bases.
Hmm. I wasn’t sold on the gray lampshade with the modern pattern. I’m not sure that one will work with my cottage look.
It would work in my office/craft room, but it’s too big to be on my desk in there.
In the end I decided to use the smaller lamp shade on the glass lamp, and I’ll look for a smaller lamp shade for the other base. I might use it on my bedside table.
Which lamp shade would you prefer?
