or I did at least from the painting mayhem known as our house. And by mayhem, I mean, I have turned into the crazy painting lady. Seriously. I went from painting shelves that feel like they will never actually be done, to painting trim....why do I do this to myself?
So on Saturday, Joshy Bobby had to work, I was in the middle of my frenzy and realized I need to run a couple errands. Thank god my children are well behaved, so off we went. Since GW happened to be right by one of these said errands, I saw the 50% off sign and couldn't resist. Yes, my name is Patience, and I'm addicted to GW....knowing is half the battle? Anyway, as I was on my usual once over (I have to work my way through twice, just in case I miss any treasures, weirdo, I know), I came to the lighting section and saw these:
Yes, you read that tag right, $1.99+50% off. What you might not be able to tell from the picture, they are cast iron and absolutely amazing! To put things lightly, I fell hard, I was in love with 2 sconces. The serendipitous part of it, is that I was having a hard time finding new lamps for our bedroom night stands, and not 4 days before mentioned to Joshy Bobby: maybe we should think about sconces? Boom, I found these babies and at a dollar a piece, I pretty much did the running man and the cabbage patch simultaneously. Yes, I get that excited. I'm tempted to leave them as is, once the space needs some freshening, I'll pull out some spray paint.
Then, whilst beaming about my sconces, I was stopped dead in my tracks by these 2. I frantically took a pic, and sent them to Joshy for approval. You see, we
try to make most decisions together on items I bring that are brought home. Mostly because I get a little excited when I find treasure at amazing prices. At $6.50 total for 2 working lamps, he was easily talked into it. Maybe he felt bad for not agreeing to the lamp I wanted to order for $250? Ha ha, thank goodness he didn't. Don't worry about the colors, I have huge spray paint plans for both of them....once I decide on a room they will be in.
Did you come across any sweet finds this weekend?
