Do you remember my $2. lamp? I found a $15. silk lampshade at HomeGoods, and have placed it on the painted chest in my dining room along with my beloved milk glass. I'm loving how the pool of light makes the milk glass glow at night.
Do you have a lot of overhead lighting in your house? I don't. The only room that has recessed cans is the kitchen. Here in the dining room, the crystal chandelier is on a dimmer, and I think it really helps to create ambience.
Just look how the milk glass glows in the lamplight. Yes, I know I'm gushing. But little things make me happy, ya know?
OK, I'll shut up now. ;)
