office makeover: desk lamps

This will be short and sweet, but I wanted to show you my little bit of updating in the office.

I've had my eye on these nickel pharmacy lamps at Chez Target for a couple months- but with the holidays I just couldn't justify $60.  (if you like to count pennies, the lamps were $29.99 each.)

Last Friday I was shopping for our usual household paper goods and cleaning supplies and thought I'd do my drive by admiration trip on the lamp aisle.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the red clearance tag on these beauties!!
$14.99 each!!! woo hoo!!

I snatched them up faster than you can say...
...well, I don't know what you'd say, but I grabbed them pretty fast.
: D


Aren't they great?


My husband also got one for his side since we are kinda matchy matchy with our office set up.
(there is no other time he likes to be matchy matchy.  If I so much as have my black leather jacket on and he already has his, he will grump about it and complain he has to go change!!  LOL!)

I've also added into the room a floor pharmacy lamp that we've had since two houses ago- I got this one for $15 at Bed Bath and Beyond!  Another grab and go moment. 

Unfortunately, before we moved from our last house, the milk glass lamp shade got smooshed between a swinging door and a wall, so now I'm on the hunt for a new shade.  I think I can probably find one from the GW that will fit.
But I'm glad it's going to be used again and not just collecting dust in our garage!



That's all I have for today!  I'm off to start on my mile long to do list- all before school gets out!
