I’ve made a tiny change to our bedroom. I switched out the pair of lamps that were on each side of the bed.
We used to have a big tall white sleigh bed (a Big Lots find that I painted) and the lamps on either side were fine. A little high but fine.
Then we got a new bed (from Joss & Main are you sick of me talking about them yet?) and it is a much lower bed. See how tall the lights are? I had to practically get out of bed to turn mine off and if I looked up I could see the white-hot lightbulb. Not good reading light for a low bed.
I even tried shopping the house for a mismatched pair of lamps but nothing worked. Also, for the record, that shade on the right is black pure black, but it reads purple. Moving on… The tables I have are really high so I had a few choices–get new lamps, get new tables, or get a lower table for in front of them and put my old lamps on. So I shopped around for a few weeks and figured out new lamps would be the easiest to find.
I found a pair of lamps from HomeGoods that can be adjusted and hinged and turned and even though they aren’t super pretty, they are perfect for this situation. I can use the old lamps in the boys new/old room and now I don’t have to be blinded when I read.
PS, I took this photo minutes before I started a fun wall treatment back there an OH my word you won’t believe how it turned out! Promise to show you soon!

Our Upholstered Bed: We bought it through Joss & Main and it’s one of the most common sales, I see it almost every week.
