Lucite Buffet Lamp Find


You would not believe how much I got for this beautiful acrylic pair of lamps!


It's too good I can't tell ya! ;-)


So pretty!
It has a jewel-like base and the body is a gold colored acrylic column.
The only problem was -  no shade.
So I had to find the right one and it took me a while.

First I tried this…

Got this shade from Target
This shade was way too big.

Luckily I found the right one at the right price at IKEA!

EKAS shade for $6.99

Then I placed this lovely pair in the area where I am at the most - our Kitchen office.


Perfect size for this small space




It actually made another move again when I was doing my winter decorating, I'll share it with you next week!

Have a Wonderful Day!

  5. I have a pair of lamps very similar to those that came from my grandmother's things many years ago but they don't have shades either. Thanks for the heads up on where to get some shades!

  13. I love those lamps and the shades are perfect in every way, and you have two of them! Nice! I love how you put them right and left of your large computer screen. Is your backsplash wallpaper or tile? It is beautiful. What a wonderful spot you have to do your work each day. Your kitchen cabinets and marble countertops are gorgeous.

  15. I love them! It's funny, I just began looking for glass lamps on a second-hand online website... You may have convinced me to phone the people who sell some!
