Of course not. But when I saw them sitting in all of their vintage goodness (while I was out Christmas shopping. You know - that time of year you're supposed to be shopping for others?), I decided they had to come home with me.
I had the perfect place for them:
They need to be polished up and one of the lamps could use a bit of rejiggering (there's a loose socket that I think I may be able to fix myself) but I like the light they bring to the room, especially at night. The black shades tone down the too-blue walls (you can read more about my master bedroom paint drama here) and almost turn them the grey-blue I was hoping for.
Any impulse purchase(s) for you while you were "gift" shopping over the holidays? Go ahead, enlighten me. (Har har.)
