Chic & Affordable Lamps & Happy Birthday Baby Boy

Friday, September 30, 2011

Thanks to all of you who left sweet comments about the lamps!  I am really happy with where things are going in this room.  The other day when I went to pick up the black shade for the second lamp, I noticed a few fun lamps that I thought you might like at Walmart.  My apologies for the phone pictures.

If my lamp fairy had not been looking out for me, I may have gone this route for bedside lamps.  The price is great though they might be a tad short for where I needed them.

 I love this color!  How great would these look with a linen shade?  I'm thinking about using this in an entry that I am working on for a client.

 Love this color!  You could really up the drama with a black shade.

These linen shades are only $15.  It is hard to see here, but it has a nice nubby texture.

Have you ever purchased lighting from Walmart?

In other news.....

Today my baby turns 13.  I can hardly believe it.  It seems like yesterday his father and I brought him home from the hospital.  Time flies.  This will be a weekend filled with celebration so I'd better get busy.  A cake to make.  A sleepover to prepare for.  And for good measure, let's add a 2 day swim meet to the mix.

Have a great weekend!  You all are the best!


  1. I have bought lamps at Walmart, I like your choices! Happy bday to that handsome 13 yr old...Have a great weekend!

  2. Aww, What a handsome little dude! Happy Birthday!

  3. We don't have a Walmart convenient to our home so I hardly ever get there but good to know they have affordable lamps. Aw, that brings tears to my eyes - happy birthday to your baby boy. Wow. I was on the swim team when I was younger and loved it. Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy 13th birthday! What an awesome son -can tell by his smile! We have Walmart nearby (a stipulation when house hunting LOL) and have bought lamps there before. Have a fun b-day weekend :)

  5. Those are some terrific finds! I've never thought of looking for lamps at Walmart. Who knew?

    Happy birthday to your son! Officially a teenager. It's crazy how time flies. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Look like Walmart is trying to keep up with Target these days! Have fun celebrating this week-end. Two teenagers, now the fun begins!


  7. Happy Birthday to your son. I have two that are grown and I can tell you that they are grown before you know it! Enjoy every minute. Well at least most.
    Love these lamps and the shade. I bought two lamps from Walmart made by Better Homes and Gardens for the bath!
    Happy Friday.

  8. I have purchased lighting at Walmart, they are so great and such great prices. I love your master retreat so far, it looks beautiful!
    Happy birthday to you son, I hope you all have a great weekend!

  9. You had me at Lamps! First of all, a very happy birthday to your adorable son and good luck with the cake and sleepover! Secondly, I have been looking for entry lamps for so long...going to Home Goods every day, coveting $300 lamps online, gritting my teeth at you when I read that not only did you find a cute lamp at a thrift store, but you later founds it's mate. Really? How is that possible? I NEVER find anything cute at thrift stores. I do not have the skill for that I guess.. So, long story short, I'm going to Walmart today and I'm going to buy those blue lamps with the $15 linen shades! And if I hate them in 6 months, who cares? I'm only in for $60! Yay! Thanks Rene and have a great weekend!

  10. First off, wow, Walmart? Who would have thought?

    Secondly, your youngest is 13!?! I would never believe it, Rene. Have a wonderful weekend celebrating!

  11. I'll have to remeber to check out Walmart next time I'm looking for a lamp. I like that blue one. Happy Birthday to your son! What a handome young man he is. Enjoy your weekend, Rene.

  12. What a cutie! Wishing you at least a few hours of sleep during the sleepover!

    Have a fun weekend!

  13. I have bought lamps and other household items at Walmart. They are just as good quality as some other larger home stores. The ones you showed are really pretty.
    You have a very handsome young man-Happy Birthday to him. Hope all of you have a fun weekend.------Shannon

  14. I can't believe how pretty these lamps are and so inexpensive.I just got a Mariposa lamp from Z Gallerie on sale last week for $60.00 and I thought that was a real steal. Happy Birthday to your baby, he's adorable.

  15. I do go to Walmart occasionally, but it is a little out of my driving "loop"......opposite direction of my trifecta...Homegoods, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Target. Must remember to turn right one day and head the other direction. In other can certainly put together a room [we have proof] but now I know that you can produce a beautiful child. Lord he is gorgeous.

  16. happy birthday to your son! time does fly! love the lamps! good choices!

  18. I actually bought a desk
    lamp there for my son,

    had a wonderful day, and
    his mom and dad, too!
