~~My New Table And Lamp~~

Hey guys! I wanted to show you where I put my new little table...or is it a chest? Maybe it's a mini chest...lol. The table I had there before was too small and so was the lamp. I have been eyeing this lamp at Hobby Lobby forever but knew I needed a more substantial table for it to fit on. The shade was a little plain so I added the fringe and trim to dress it up. I think I have way to many accessories with birds on them, see the pictures in the background? I am drawn to anything with a bird on it!

Here are my new finds in their spot! It's fun to get something new!
I hope you are having a great week!

This room is truly one of my favorites in all of blog land! You have really created an elegant space but very welcoming at the same time. Bravo Kristen!

Your new table/chest is perfect in this spot. I can see why you loved the twist bird lamp. It is gorgeous! ~WOW! I didn't know your draperies puddled? I love that look. What a stunning room!

Thank you for checking out our back deck! I can't wait for the hummingbirds to arrive. I'm bird crazy this year too. I just adore my gift from you. Thanks again!

I'm off to water my ferns since I forgot to do it today. I'm going to be so busy tomorrow. ~Whew!

Kristen~ the scale of the table and lamp are perfect in this room. I'm loving the your new "mini chest"!

Denise said...

Very pretty, and I love the birds on the lamp. Funny, my Mam used to think birds in the house were very unlucky, she didn't even like them on a birthday card! Thankfully I didn't inherit her 'old superstitions'!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Beautiful room! I love the lamp you spruced up. The trim gives the shad a designer look. Very lovely!

I love your pictures! You really inspire me to start back into my decorating since we had some remodeling done. I have a four month "leave" from it but think about to get started again. Love all the bird things!

Love this room....Let me know as soon as you have some things in stock...I am ready to buy...I am looking for a neat little small black or brown book shelf for a bedroom....maybe even a small table would work...may stop by Kirklands tomorrow..

What a beautiful table and lamp. The black table picks up the black in the rug...great choice! This room is also my favorite. I love the warm colors and those curtains are just lovely.

I love the Casting Crows song and the lyrics...so pretty!

Thanks for sharing, you always inspire!

XO ~ Liz

Kristen, that room is just perfect! I don't think you have too many birds at all. I love that lamp! I'm wondering if my Hobby Lobby has it too. :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Such a beautiful room, Kristen! Love the lamp and the table. I need another small side table for my living room. I currently have one that is also too small, but it works for the moment. I'd like to find something at Goodwill or the thrift store to paint. That lamp is great ~ I thought the shade came with the fringe! Pier 1 has a clock sitting on a branch with a bird that would go really well with your lamp. I know this because I bought it!

ButterYum said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely... I really enjoy your sense of color/style. Oh, and I don't think you have too many birds at all.

Kim said...

Wow Kristen, they are both gorgeous! Just when I thought that room couldn't possibly get any prettier! I too am so into birds right now. I was thinking of doing a post about all of my birds. Hey, I've been meaning to thank you for the beautiful arrangement you made for me! I got it so quickly and just love it so much! I found the perfect home for it too. You are the best!
xoxo,
Kim

Gorgeous table and the new lamp is wonderful too. I really like the trim you added to the shade. Your room is so pretty, it is always a thrill to look at it again. I think the table and lamp are perfect and I like the darker color of the table in your room. Stunning additions. Hugs, Marty
