The last few days a mini-mission has been taking over my brain and that involved getting another lighting arrangement in my office. It is too dark and I don't like working in a cave. I looked online and in stores but today I actually shopped and bought two lamps. One from Lowes, a torchiere that I wasn't quite sure about. The lamp from Lowes is definitely going back because the light isn't dulled at all so it as if you don't have a shade at all. Plus, the amber in the glass makes everything yellow and I got soft bright lightbulbs for a reason. The other is this three piece Colby set from Costplus. I think the floor lamp in the Colby set will work but it needs a different shade that will be wider on the top to let more light out.
How I wish we had our IKEA built here already. A friend of mine offered to ship me whatever I want from IKEA and she pretty much made my year.
I might have to take her up on her offer if I don't get this figured out sooner than later.
