Today I’m writing about my daughter’s lamps that I never got a chance to post about yet. If you remember correctly I bought a $3 brass swing arm lamp at the thriftstore a while ago for my daughter’s room. After that I was on a mission to find another matching swing arm and I just didn’t have any luck at the thrift stores. When I knew that DIY magazine was going to come to my house that search intensified because I didn’t just want one lamp in the photos of her bedroom. That’s where Kenroy Home came to the rescue. (This is not a sponsored post but I was provided the lamps by Kenroy Home. All opinions are 100% my own)
The new bedside brass swing arm lamps from have a much more modern shape to them which I like a lot better and they were really easy to install.
All I had to do is attach the hardware to the wall with my favorite screw in plastic anchors, attach the copper wire to the grounding screw and attach the brass plate and arm over that with the two provided brass screws.
After that I just screwed the hardware for the brass wire cover in place the same way I attached the other hardware. Then I placed the wire inside and cover everything with the pretty brass rail that came with everything.
Doesn’t it all look pretty together?
The only thing I changed up was the lamp shade. The lamp come with this pleated shade but I used the white and orange shades that I had purchased at Target for the old lamps because they match the fabric and pillows on the bed.
Here are the different shades. Orange on the inside and white on the outside (I don’t think they sell them anymore). They give a really nice warm glow when turned on.
It’s perfect for her because it doubles as a desk lamp and also gives her more space on her tiny desk because it doesn’t take away table surface. Click HERE to see more of her room.
And I truthfully couldn’t be any happier with the lamps. Don’t they look perfect?
