Let there be lamps

Sometimes Kerry and I like to read study or look at magazines in bed before we hit the hay.  Until two weeks ago, we've only had one lamp in our room - on my nightstand.  It's a pain because he doesn't get enough light and when I want to go to sleep, he has to shut it off when he's finished.

I've been searching and searching for lamps for both our nightstands.  Something simple, yet a little modern.  It has to be a good height and a good color for the room.  I've looked at Home Goods, Wal-Mart, Target, IKEA, and TJ Maxx - all with no luck.  Then... we decided to stop at World Market.  Lamps and shades were on sale, so we took a look at what they had.  And I found them!

They are the perfect height and the lamp shade is the perfect size.  I like the color, but I'm still deciding on if I like it for our room.  If I don't, I can always spray paint them later on.  

I love having the flexibility of two lamps in the room.  I'm glad that after 3.5 years, I've finally found some lamps for our's the little things. 

Where are your bedside lamps?  Mounted into the wall?  Hanging from the ceiling?

Now you can Do It Yourself Too !
