Pottery Barn Kids lampshades, and brand-spankin' new. And perfect. And they were marked $2.99 each with 50% off. And new. How could I not?
I guess I can change my son's current RED shade with the adorable blue denim whipstitched one... and BUY a lamp to fit the other... what do you think?(maybe I do this kinda stuff just to fill the time...as if I don't have a million other things to finish...)
The other thing was, I actually found some matching chairs on Craigslist. I was complaining about CL a couple of posts ago, here. Craigslisted at $20.00 each, not bad, the photo online looked great... but when I got there (I drove 20 minutes!! ), one had major damage on the cane part. I was bummed, but they had to sell, they were the last things left in the home they were moving from. So, I ended up paying $20.00 for both...I still don't know if they qualify as a "score" or random act of kindness on my part.
(If anyone knows how to repair caning, please drop me a line... I ordered a piece of cane and was thinking of gluing a patch over the existing, paint them distressed white, and calling it a day.)
