Those lamps are gorgeous!! You're right the new lamp's proportions are so much better. I actually want to do a post on choosing the right sized bedside lamp.

Thanks so much for sharing this! I agree that it is crazy how much those lamps change the whole look. It's nice to know that one small change can sometimes do the trick!

Oh wow!! I have two old lamps right now--I think I need to do this! So simple--but makes such a HUGE impact.

Awesome! The lamps are so pretty and the room looks great.

Incredible - looks like a whole new room. They really balance out the entire room since they pop against the darker wood too.

Those table lamps are beautiful! They add so much style to the room. Great pick!

Enjoy your day!
