sometimes it’s the smallest changes that make the biggest difference. i’ve been (slowly) working on redecorating my bedroom, and i’ve been wanting to update my lamp pretty much ever since i got it two years ago. when i bought my bedside table off craigslist, the seller threw in the lamp for cheap. i like the base, but the shade was bleh. typical, accordian pleats, dull cream color…just bleh. but lampshades can be pricey, and i wasn’t sure what i wanted, so i just let the old one stick around far too long.
but then, i was in goodwill yesterday, and ahhhh-ahhhh (that’s the sound of angels singing)…there it was! the perfect lampshade! crisp white, no pleats, modern round shape…it was love at first sight. and bonus…it was only $2.99! done and done. and look at the difference! the light coming from the lamp even looks less yellow-y.
one small change, one big difference.
