Seeing Spots in the Foyer: My New Animal Print Lampshade


As much as I liked the gallery wall in our foyer, I was never happy with the lampshade that came with the black lamp I used on the table. It's a sort of flat looking shade of gold and I knew I wanted something else.

I got such a great deal on it and love the new shade so much it's hard to resist looking for more to use somewhere else in the house.

What do you think? Do you the like the new look better than the old gold shade?

  1. I absolutely LOVE your creativity. Your home is a Vision. If I had one ounce of your craftiness, what I could do with my little home. I am going to try to study your website and figure out if I have it in me to decorate.

    I am tapping my forehead and pondering.
