About a week ago I ordered 2 of these from The Restoration Hardware….
And today they arrived. “The 1900’s Pharmacy Sconce”…Wow! is all I can say
Now everyone knows that I am NOT an impulse shopper. FAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR from it. In fact, there have been several times that I have had to think about a purchase for so long that whatever the Hell I was planning on buying in the first place is long sold out by the time I decide to just buy it . Especially if that particular item is on sale…..
But not this time…I have been watching these lamps for years ….
And I got them!
50% off even ..and ….wait for it ….another 10% ( which sealed the deal and just about covered the shipping )
The Restoration Hardware is certainly one of my favorite stores…..but the Good Lord knows I can only shop there during extreme sales. I was a tad bit hesitant because they are NON-refundable. But no worries at all…I Love, Love, Love them ……..They are even more chunky and industrial looking in person.
“And just what do I plan to do with these lamps?” you ask,
Simple, either side of the bed in the master bedroom…but it gets WWWAAAYYY better than that ..
I’m also doing a reclaimed wood wall behind the headboard…. This is something I have been wanting to do for years. And now I have the vision.
Here’s the wall I found on Pinterest that totally inspires me …..
Pretty Groovy? Right ? That headboard is pretty close to our bed. Same color and height …..
Look closely…Can you tell where this wood came from? Can you?….Need a hint?
That whole wall is made from reclaimed shipping pallets. Shipping Pallets! They’ve just had all the nails pulled and a light sanding. That’s it! Can you belive this? Now I am all about turning trash into treasure…I have been dumpster diving since I was a toddler and I see these things just laying in alleys all the time. Have you ever bought one?…they are only about 3 bucks each.
Since I’m not doing the entire wall, just a strip up the back of the headboard and enough on either side of the bed for a rockin’ly cool pharmacy sconce… I shouldn’t need that much wood at all.
We have a 3 day holiday weekend this weekend, and because I have been a good boy and completely taken down, packed, and labeled every piece of holiday decor in the house (anyone who knows me …knows that this usually happens around March 15th) ……. I should have plenty of time to do this little project.
So stay tuned ………
