Who's Bright Idea Was That? Don't worry about Resale.
I've been wanting some buffet lamps for my Foyer table. I wanted to put the vases that were there in the bathroom on my whirlpool. (Note to self...next house will not have a whirlpool as I never use it. I only dust it! I will not care about resale in the next house...maybe. )
(Another note to self...get David to take down the pink and green stained glass)
Ok, so I find these gorgeous and totally perfect lamps on Ebay and I don't have to bid on them. I can just buy them. I like that feature much better as I like to be the winner and when you can just "buy it now" there's no chance of being the loser and missing out on the things you really wanted to be the winner on in the first place. Does that make sense?
So anyway, I get my beautiful lamps, (hello gorgeous silk shades) unwrap them from the boxes, smile wide and then... I see the cords. Dag nab it! Who's bright idea was it to put ugly yellow gold cords on lamps??? What happened to the clear cords or the white cords? Is it a new electrical code I don't know about? Yellow gold cords?? Come on how icky is that! So now I have to make cord covers (because they are so expensive to buy) or wrap them with ribbon or heck...spray paint them! Anything to get rid of that hideous color.
The lamps really do look great with my antique mirror and Mr. Welcome Bunny. I am pleased with the elegant look they add to my Foyer.
So... are you a tub person or a shower person? Not that I will worry about resale in the next house...maybe. :)
