Let’s talk about my last obsession with all things rope. I want to wrap EVERYTHING in rope. Sometimes, even my husbands head. Just kidding…
But seriously, rope. Textured neutral, gives interest to space while still complimenting practically any color scheme, I could go on and on.
Anyway, we needed a floor lamp in our living room, and I wanted something substantial and neutral. I kept coveting this lamp from west elm (quelle surprise) and really not wanting to tell my husband that a 350 dollar lamp had edged him out of my dreams.
And so I did the only thing any girl would do. I went to target. Because they know how to do a girl right for the right price. I looked around for a lamp with a shape that I liked, and for 70 bones, I took the plunge.
While I felt this lamp was a little on the thin side, I knew it was nothing my hot glue gun and a mess of rope couldn’t fix. (Also, I got another lamp shade. that one was wrong in every way.)
And so with a glass of cabernet and an extra pack of glue sticks, I set out on a journey for a perfect floor lamp. I must say, and it could be the cab talking, but I think I hit the nail on the head here.
- lamp - with a shape you like
- rope - for this floor lamp, about 30 feet
- hot glue gun - with plenty of hot glue sticks
A $110 price tag instead of $350 for this knock off is so much easier to swallow. Happy Hot Gluing!
