Just an update on our $50 hallway challenge:
You might recognize the Mirror, it's from our original Manor. He previously lived in the Dining Room.
I found the lamp at Ikea yesterday, it was the perfect diameter (I've been having trouble finding a lamp that will fit on our narrow console). It has a very nice silhouette to it, and the price was just right at $21.99 Canadian, I would tell you the American price but I can't find it on the website, then I checked the Canadian website and it's not there either. Apparently I just imagined the perfect lamp.
Maybe, it was all just a fantastic Ikea shopping dream (it wouldn't be the first).
I was told it just came in from the woman who worked there after she heard my little squeal when I found it :), true story.
So I hope it will make it's way on to the website soon, but if you live in BC it's there, trust me :)
I bought the Ekas Shade to go with it for $8.00, so for $30.00 I have a perfect lamp for the hallway console!
But one little, teeny, tiny problem, it's so tiny it's barely worth mentioning but . . . .
When I put the lamp together, brought it up stairs, put it on top of the console, then tried to plug it in, I noticed there isn't an electrical outlet on that side of the hall :S eeeerrrrrrr . . . . . oops.
I threw what could only be called a mild hissy fit :) and Lee did his detective work, and being the super handy, electrical engineer that he is, said it wouldn't be too much work for him to install an electrical outlet on that side, it would simply involve
I'll let you know how it goes on Monday :)
