The most recent update is new nightstand lamps. When we replaced the nightstands, it quickly became obvious that the surface space was pretty small. I decided that switching out our existing (and non-coordinating) lamps for some swing-arm lamps would be just the solution we needed. Luckily, Loren agreed. :) What neither of us could agree on was the high price of swing-arm lamps! Once I knew that was the direction we wanted to go, and I started shopping, I couldn't believe how expensive they were! I thought I'd found the best price possible on Amazon but it still would've been about $160 total which made me hesitant to complete the purchase. I stalled long enough that I was able to find a winning lamp at Home Depot. For $35! Wahoo!!
The lamp itself requires a little bit of assembly. I'm not going to lie, Loren did all the work installing these lights. But he said that it's easy, just screw the visible wall plate to the portion that actually screws into the wall, and then connect the cord covers together. We don't have any pictures because he was working by himself in a hurry before company arrived! Nothing like a visitor to get our booties in gear!
Here's the lamps all set up! We're loving them so far! They're great for allowing extra space on the nightstand and Loren loves that he can pull the light closer to him.
Our nightstands still need a little styling, but Loren is definitely more into function rather than decor. I guess I'd like a mix of both. But this is where we are now, reading in a whole new light. :) Operation bedroom makeover is finally approaching the finish line. What do you think of the new lamps? Anyone else a fan of the swing-arm lamp?
