I picked this up at the Restore this weekend for $12.
Then, I bought a separate shade off a different lamp for $3.99.
It represents the start of something that has been bugging me for a while…it is time to re-do the master bedroom which makes the second room I will have painted twice in the 3 years we have lived here. It became clear to me when I was reading in the dark with a headlamp on so John could sleep for the third night in a row. Should I paint the brass parts white?
The Young House Love‘s paint guide recommends for colors to choose a muddier color than you think you want for walls. I am thinking something like this:
While I am clearly not afraid of really dark colors, I think I am leaning towards one of the last 4. Now I just have to find curtains that will block out the light and match this super light palette.
