One of my very favorite ways to make a room feel fresh and new is to change something small. I love to take something in my house that I often gloss over visually, something I’m so used to seeing every day, and swapping it out for something fresh. It always breathes new life into the room and gives me a new appreciation for the space. A perfect example? Swapping out our bedside lamps for something a little different!
For years now, we’ve had some thrifted lamps that I made over on our bedside table. They looked good in the space, but I’ve been itching for something a little new and different for a while now. So, when the switch on mine broke a couple of weeks ago, I decided it was time to go ahead and replace it.
I wanted something smaller (I feel like my nightstand is always overflowing!) and with a totally different look. If you’re going to change it, might as well change it all the way, right?!
I bought three lamps on Amazon and did a mini lamp fashion show for Corey. It was pretty easy for us to agree on one, and I’m so pleased with the new look!
Our New Bedside Lamps
I’ve been longing for a few small changes in our bedroom for a while now, and this was the perfect way to scratch that itch! The new lamps are so cute, they give off a completely different vibe, and they take up way less nightstand real estate.
I love that they have two bulbs in them, so I can go for just a little bit of light if I’m reading before bed, or a lot of light if I need to get some work done or something. The change has also inspired me to play around with the styling a little bit more and refresh everything over here. It never fails to amaze me how such small little tweaks can make a space feel so different!
When I was looking for lamps to try, I found some really great options that I wanted to share with you. Lamps can be a particularly tricky thing to shop for, because they’re often expensive and I don’t know about you but I have a hard time swallowing $100+ for one single little lamp!
These are all affordable options, and many of them come as a pair, which makes it even better!
