Anyway, I came across the picture below which I had saved to my favorites file.
I noticed the two alabaster lamps and immediately knew I had found at least part of my decorating solution. You see I already owned a pair of similar lamps which were currently residing on my bedroom dresser.
So I did a test run and moved the pair to the buffet - loved it!
This left the dresser empty.
I liked having a matching set of lamps on the long dresser and decided to regroup the pair of painted brass lamps I had separated to two different bedside tables.
Now that my dresser was once again complete I was left with two empty bedside tables – one in my daughter’s bedroom and one in the master bedroom.
A trip to Target and my daughter’s empty beside table was filled.
A trip to the basement guest room and my bedside table was looking good again.
Needless to say, what started as a simple desire to accessorize a buffet snowballed into a few hours of lamp rearranging. Fun, but definitely more time consuming than what I had in mind when I started.
I am happy with the result but still need one more lamp for the guest bedroom.
I was curious to know if you have ever done this – moved or added one thing only to spend the day moving things from here to there. I am guessing we all have a similar story to tell. I would love to hear yours!
