It’s party time once again at Serenity Now for Amanda. If you need help with a decorating dilemma, this party is for you. Post your dilemma and Amanda’s helpful readers will offer solutions.
My dilemma is this lamp. My grandfather bought it who knows where and had it in his shed with the intentions of restoring it. Years after granddaddy died, when it was time for granny to move into a retirement home, Mr. SP discovered it in the shed and took it home. He cleaned it, rewired it, repainted the gold, and used rub and buff (or something like that) to bring out the texture of the wood. This lamp has been waiting patiently in our basement for over five years for an appropriate shade. Can you help? Mr. SP and I have no idea what kind of shade would work with this lamp.
Do you have a lamp that is similar to this one with a great looking shade? If you do, please share what you use that looks good.
Mr. SP did a great job on the details.
Any advice that you may have for a lamp shade for this lamp will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Amanda for hosting the party. It will be fun to see what dilemmas are out in Blogland for the month of April. Click here to return to the party.
