Why are lamps so dang expensive!? I searched and searched my usual spots for inexpensive lamps before I stumbled on these at Wal-Mart (of all places). When I say I searched and searched, I mean it took me about a year to find lamps at a reasonable price. Every floor lamp I saw at places like T.J. Maxx and Homegoods was about $80 and up, and I needed two of them so that was not gonna fly.
This is kind of what I was looking for, but with a much smaller price tag
|Chelsea Floor Lamp $125|
The lamp comes with a shade that I'm not crazy about, but for a $40 base I figured I could dump the shade it came with and find an cheap drum shade. Wal-Mart's Canopy line has drum shades for $15 (Target's 14" drum shades are $20). For a little more than $110, less than the price of my inspiration, I was able to get two floor lamps to light up my living room.
