A few months ago, we had a little incident at our house.
It went something like this...
Son #2: Uh mom, something happened to the lamp in our room.
Me: What happened?
Son #1: Uh, we don't know, but one of the lamps in our room doesn't look right.
Me: Did you break it?
Son #2: I didn't do it?
Son #1: I didn't do it either!
Me: Well, then who did it?
Both Sons: Uh, we were just playing football in our room
and the ball kind of flew across the room and hit the lamp and now the lamp looks weird.
Me: You mean, you broke it?
Both Sons: Silence.
Unfortunately, that kind of thing happens often around here.
Probably the reason I don't buy expensive things.
Ever since the mystifying lamp incident, the reading light in my boys' room has been less than stellar.
I made a trip to the Ballard Outlet last week, where I scored these amazing ottomans for a client.
I also came home with two of these sconces.
It was the doorbuster deal of the day, so I got them for $29.99 each.
I switched out the shades for some Target drum shades.
In case you haven't noticed, my puppy, Willee, likes to be photographed.
He literally follows me everywhere, and I mean everywhere.
I don't mind, I kind of like having a little sidekick.
The new sconces provide just the right amount of light for reading.
My little guy is in kindergarten and is just learning to read.
I love snuggling with him in bed listening to him sound out words.
To make the cords a little less conspicuous,
I used these little cord hooks to hide them next to the window frame.
The hooks are hidden behind the curtains.
Wonder how long it will be before a football/baseball/basketball accidentally flies into
these sconces and makes them look weird?
Good thing they were only $29.99!
This room has come a long way since winning the Ugly Carpet Contest.
