when I was still a
New Construction Superintendent,
once all our home sites were sold the model homes went up for sale and one of our benefits was to get first dibs at auction on the model home contents! I bought some amazing stuff for next to nothing—for real! Nice employee benefit!
Furniture, accessories, lighting—and these lamps for my mother.
They might’ve cost me- $10 ??
I loved the fruit festooned garlands, the oxidizing, the SIZE ~they’re big! They looked nice in mom’s LL, but eventually got the boot with other changes.
I won’t give up the expensive silk shades I had on them—a n d luckily a month ago I happened to find a pair of drum shades I hoped would work! LINEN drum shades—$6 each.
I let their color dictate the direction of this change, and used a Fossil and Peanut Butter-y color brushed together for a mottled tone.
Once dry I Lime Waxed for added dimension!
