Craigslist Lamps Get A Makeover

A couple months back I became the proud owner of some gigantic lamps I found on Craigslist. I had originally planned on them being about half their size, but I made do with what I had.

You can read the purchase story here if you like :)

They were pretty ugly before.

Now they are a real statement in my living room.

And I really like them. Thanks to my little girl for picking out the fabric. Who knows what they would  look like if I had picked it out :)

  9. How nice! Are you bad at picking out fabric too?! I order fabric online because it's so darn cheap and there are so many more choices, but then it gets here and I'm always surprised by the how the color looks in person or how HUGE the print actually is :)
