Desire/Acquire: Tea Set Lamp

The Anthropologie One-Lump-or-Two Lamp ($198) is quite cute in a British country cottage way, and I adore its espresso cup finial. But, I'd say it's a tad overpriced for a table lamp that looks so crafty, and that doesn't come with a shade. Luckily, there's a more affordable alternative that can be customized to fit your color scheme. To see it,


Etsy seller Vintage Renaissance hand-crafts these Tea Set Lamps ($100) from vintage dishes so that each one is unique. You can choose your preferred color of Krylon spray paint for the base to personalize the lamp. Unfortunately, the shade is not included. I can see this lamp looking really cool with the right palette and a not-so-country-bumpkin shade. Personally, I'd go with a glossy white base and perhaps a tall, black, silk drum shade.

Pottery Barn kids had one similar to the anthro one- not as great, but cheaper. This is all I could find on their site now:|k

oh also if I'm going to spend 100.00 on a lamp I'd prefer it already have the finial on top that I want. But I can also see this is a fun DIY project. Making lamps really aren't that difficult. Finding old teacups at antique stores etc. and building the lamp could be alot of fun, and a great way to express your creativity.

true about the finials. I'm picturing it in a large kitchen at a desk area, or on a buffet in a dining room. Or for a study/library/sitting room, particularly a woman's study/library/sitting room.

Kimpossible: You can buy finials at places like Home Depot, and just glue something on top. Maybe something from a child's tea set? This is not my style. What room would something like this look good in? It is a cute idea, but doesn't seem very practical to me.

What?! Anthropologie has expensive lamps? And they might be overpriced?! No way! ;)

I do love these lamps. I wish the less expensive one had a teacup finial on the top like the Anthropologie one does.
