Originally, I bought this lamp to use it in my dorm room at AU because it went perfect with my brown/pink comforter. However, when I moved back home, it just ended up in my room and has been there since. I’ve always wanted to replace it since the colors never matched, but I never got around to it until now. Pink doesn’t really fit in with the blues, oranges, greens, yellows, and browns in my duvet. I’d say it was time for some color coordination.
When I was recently at Pier 1, I saw some adorable paper lanterns.. and the lightbulb in my head went off! (Pun intended.) I knew they would look great in my room, plus be a nice replacement for my old lamp.
I went with orange and white, small and large sizes, and all together with the lanterns and cords it was only like $35. Not bad for a cute, yet practical addition in the corner of my room! They really help to light up my somewhat dark room. They hang over my desk and look lovely (special thanks to Ryan!) He is always super sweet and is always willing to help me out with things like this!
Hopefully my Dad can still signal to me through this new light source. :) (Believe it or not, he made my old lamp turn on/blink the night of his Memorial Service. No doubt about it. My cousin was with me and witnessed it too.)
