The Real Slim Shady


I've got a new project. Yesterday we went to Stouffville to pack up some more stuff. Jeff's brother and his wife are moving into the house, so most of the contents are receiving the old "keep, toss, donate" treatment. We got a set of silverware (lovely and old school with some family history) some pots, and these two gorgeous marble lamps.

The shades that were on them previously were quickly added to the "toss" pile. Now we need to find something that works. I'm thinking shiny, satin gunmetal grey. Perhaps a rectangular shade, or a tall, narrow drum. Or perhaps black. Something dramatic and a bit glamorous. I've put a call out to the folks at Apartment Therapy for reader-insights, so I'll keep you posted!

    i say black tall and narrow drums-lampshades....

    love the lamps. think it is a good idea to have them sitting out so you can brainstorm some ideas.
