I’m always up for a challenge. Especially when it has to do with cute lamps.
Chelsea of Yours Truly recently opened an online home accessory & furnishings shop on Joy & Revelry and asked me to be part of a “white box challenge.” She chose a surprise item from her shop and sent the same thing to me and several other bloggers, asking us to show how we would use it in our homes. Mine arrived first. It’s always a good day when a pair of lamps show up on your doorstep.
These lamps are small—16 inches tall—and compare in size to a wall sconce. So, I decided to use mine in a similar way. I carried them around the house trying them in different places before they landed on the mantel (for now, anyway). The previous homeowners made a lot of good decisions when they built, and putting an outlet on the mantel was one of them.
The size makes them really versatile. If/when I ever find a small table for our powder room, I think they’d be perfect in there. They’d also work on a desk, or a kitchen or bathroom countertop. For now, mine are happy here:
