I bought this floor lamp ( no comments about it being chavvy !)

It came with a white shade which doesn't go with our colour scheme which is aubergine and grey/silver.

I bought a new shade off the internet but it looks silly.

Can anyone find a silver and/or aubergine shade for me ?

ChesterFuckingDraws Fri 01-Jul-16 23:05:02 idea about the shade but where is the lamp from-I think I might need it grin
To go with my glitter wallpaper!

Ooh we've got glitter wall paper too ! The lamp is from Argos

Thanks, I'll be getting me a new lamp!!

Have you tried ikea or dunelm for a shade? They're usually my first stops!

Doinmummy Fri 01-Jul-16 23:32:34

I've looked everywhere ! I paid £26 for this new shade and it looks rubbish !

Doinmummy Fri 01-Jul-16 23:33:31

We've even got the same mirror !

something like this perhaps?

ChesterFuckingDraws Fri 01-Jul-16 23:41:13

Doin, really?! That's so strange!! Well we're going to have the same lamp too!
Sorry I'm no help with the shade!

You guys are so cute grin. If you don't immediately become best friends over your joint love of sparkly decor I will be extremely disappointed!

Can't help but I strongly approve of the mirror which I also own grin

We're glittery twins !

My DD and I recently moved into a smaller house after having to have lodgers for 16 years to make ends meet . Our rule is that we can't buy anything beige or cream and everything has to be glittery !

My bedroom is all silver , my headboard has got diamante on it . DD's room is all gold . I've painted the hall with glittery paint. All photo frames are diamante or silver. I've even got a sparkly loo brush !

That's nice lord .

I need to get rid of DH to get all the sparkle I want!!
Only managed the lounge and our bedroom so far, without him I'd have it in every room!
I like the rules you have, I just sneak in glitter/diamanté accents and DH doesn't always notice so I get away with it most of the time 😂

Is it the shape of the shade that doesn't work? You need a drum shade.

Loving that fireplace!!!

Doinmummy Sat 02-Jul-16 11:07:49

Yes I agree Wow
This is the shade that came with the lamp . I think I might try and bling it up myself , what do you think ?

Doinmummy Sat 02-Jul-16 11:09:11

I've been to hobby craft and bought some ribbon . Haven't stuck it on yet - what do you think ?
