Brass Lighting & an 80’s Thrift Store Mirror – Aka: A Master Bedroom Update
Now for the biggest question asked… “I see a brass lamp in the corner. Where’s it from and show me more!” Ha! Okay, so yes, we DID switch out the bedside lighting in our master bedroom, to these really awesome antique brass, plug in wall sconces from Pottery Barn.
The fan/light fixture in this space, much like our other one that we switched out in the living room, has never been my favorite. We used to have a black bed, so we thought a black fan was a smart choice at the time, but in reality, it sticks out like a sore thumb against our white ceiling and the light that it provides is just subpar. So… yet again, we’re on the hunt for a new ceiling fan, because Cason insists he can’t sleep without one. There go my dreams for a cool ceiling-mount chandelier of some sort in this space. boo!
Alright, so back to the sconces. This was NOT an easy decision. Although I loved the idea that sconces would give to this room, I was so attached to those clear lamp bases from Target with metal shades; maybe even more-so because we found them at a consignment shop, and they’re one of a kind!
These were a cinch to put up, and we REALLY like them, along with all the extra space we have on our nightstands now.
As you can see, I propped this huge mirror up on my table as well, because I fell in love with it while thrift shopping. Cason told me that the 80’s called and wanted their mirror back. (ugh)… I told him that he was crazy and this bad boy is WHERE IT’S AT!
Yes, part of me knows that it’s way too big for the space… yet the rest of me loves it SO MUCH for it’s functionality when it’s time to get ready for the day, sleek shape and thin gold frame, that it’s most likely going to end up staying anyway.
“Correctly” proportioned items or ample space for something super-awesome in a room is overrated sometimes… wouldn’t you say?
