Top Ten Tall Table Lamps

What a tongue twister of a title, right? While I was snapping pics of those amazing Piece by Paz candles last week, I decided that I hate my current end table lamp so now I’m on the hunt for a replacement! It needs to be pretty tall to fit proportionately with the ceiling height, so here are my favorite tall table lamps that are in the running for my living room.

My current lamp is a vintage yellow ginger jar that is approximately 20″ tall, then I have a 10–12″ shade on top. The combined height and general size of the lamp base work really well in the room. So, with that in mind, here were the requirements for my hunt for tall table lamps:

  • At least a 20″ base
  • Not wood: it’s tough to match the finish of my wooden end table and I’m not prepared to replace the table as well as the lamp.
  • Cat proof: George likes to knock things off of the end table and I don’t want to take any chances!

With those requirements, I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find a replacement. But I’m nothing if not a determined online shopper, so here are the tall table lamps I found:

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
