This weekend I met up with a bunch of wonderful mid-Tennessee bloggers this weekend for breakfast and thrifting. Besides myself, we had Amy @ Positively Splendid, Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage, Michele @ The Scrap Shop and Cha Cha @ Sit, Relax, and Read. It was a fantastic time and we talked for almost two hours straight – lots of info sharing, craft tips, and a little venting!
After our yummy breakfast we ran over to a local Goodwill and did a little thrifting! Several of us found some little treasures! I had been on the lookout for a new lamp for our master bedroom – and while I found a bunch of cute stuff – no lamp. We took a picture and then our little group broke up at that point. (Amy took off before then so she is missing from below!)

I had to head home to be back out that afternoon – but I still really wanted to find a lamp. So I decided to stop by my Goodwill and see if I could find one. Well don’t you know – there it was. Just sitting there – still available on 50% off day at 1pm! At that point, I knew it was meant to be. So I paid my $2.19 and took it home.
Ok – so here was our old lamp. A couple problems. One – I really disliked the uber modern shape of the base. Two - it is REALLY tall and stood almost as high as my headboard.
So what did I find to replace it? Well I wanted to find a chunkier base that I could spray paint a heirloom white color. Imagine my surprise when my little found lamp was already a perfect off white color all on its own! Here she is!
Isn’t she beautiful? I just love the lines! I am really glad I didn’t have to paint her because it was way too cold today! Oh and the shade? I got the drum shade a while ago from Wal-Mart for a different lamp. I just love the two of them together!
A perfect little lamp! I have decided I HAVE to get my all my Master Bedroom projects done before I start working on the nursery. So I am declaring March to be Master Bedroom month! What about you? Do you have Master Bedroom projects you need to do? If so then let’s commit (and commiserate) together and get those projects done!
