If you know who sings the song referenced in the title, you get a shiny new penny. All you need to do is send me a self-addressed stamped envelope to receive your prize. I will be waiting…..
But as I wait for the piles of mail to start arriving, I can bath under the soft glow of this kick-booty lamp that I picked up at Urban Ore this week. In my post yesterday, I mentioned that I passed up all the glorious pieces of furniture I found and actually went for something rather ordinary but special in my opinion. Matter of fact, I unknowningly showed you all a sneak peek of what I bought….
I saw it sitting sadly on a shelf and it said “Buy me…..please”. How could I deny such a polite lamp? More importantly, how could I pass up the awesome wooden base and priced at $18, it was destined to come home with me.
The wooden base is in perfect condition, the brass bottom and top brackets, not so much…..
However, I think that with a little steel wool, the brass will taken on a really nice matte brass finish. Now I just need to find a lamp shade and I am all set. Then there is that pesky issue of finding a place for it in my house. I have a location in mind but it will require some slight moving around of items. If that doesn’t work there, then I have a client that it potentially could benefit from it. But then I have to ask, is it odd (and slightly wrong) to give perspective clients my design cast-offs?
