My husband thinks I'm crazy.

Yesterday, we were checking out our local farmer's market and we just happened to drive by a garage sale. {I don't normally go to garage sales, I am more of a CL girl} I told him to slow down so I could see if there was anything good... and what did I see?! Two horse lamps!!! I told him I needed them and he told me I was crazy. I made him take me back to see if they worked. They did. Ten bucks for the pair.

Now I must agree, they were a little questionable at first. But, as you know, this in nothing a little spray paint can't take care of :)

Since he wasn't loving the idea, I let him choose the color. I should have known before I even asked. Orange. {Once a cowboy, always a cowboy! Go Pokes!}

I ran to target and grabbed a couple of lamp shades for $12 each. {Disclaimer: I don't like the way they look with the art so I will either be moving the art or the lamps.}

He still thinks they are weird. I think they are freaking awesome!

I might be attending a few more garage sales!

These are awesome and soooo Jonathan Alder! I love them, and they look awesome with the lamp shades! Such a good find! I am more of a estate sale girl, but sometimes you find cheap treasures, and it's worth at least a drive by. If you see a TON of baby clothes and toys, don't get out.

Michelle these are amazing!! I always stop at garage sales. Teel's right, do not get out for baby clothes and toys. It's amazing what cheap thrills you can find!

I LOVE these! I, too, am married to an OSU grad, so I can get away with anything as long as it's painted orange. :) These lamps are fantastic. Great find, and you have a great eye!
