I have been inspired by reading home design bloggers who frequent garage sales and thrift shops to find other people's castaways that they turn into beautiful pieces for their home.  I took a stroll through our local Value Village and found this lamp for $7.99.

 I am still not sure what I think of it.  I like the cat tails on it because we live out in the country and often see them in the ditches.  The colours work in my living room but I am not sure what colour or style of shade to put with it.  I am going to have a look tonight to see what I can find.  I will post a photo of what I come up with.  Any ideas?


  1. What about something "natural" looking? Like burlap or something?

  2. I think natural looking would be perfect! I had no luck tonight but will try again tomorrow and post what I come up with. Thanks!
