My mother-in-law invited me over to see if I could use anything (that's silly, I can 'use' everything - tee hee) and I found these amazing lamps that, with a little love, would go perfect in out living room. I snatched them up. My mother-in-law thought I was crazy for taking them, but I'm sure there are a ton of other things I do that play into that conclusion.
Later on, I learned that these lamps were my father-in-law's from college. Okay, maybe it wasn't exactly 1974, but you get the drift. Awesome nonetheless. So unintentionally retro; I blow my own mind sometimes. Anywho, the lamps worked, but the shade and the metallic finish were definitely begging for help. Screaming, in fact.
No more age spots!
