I haven’t met a floor lamp I didn’t like… this is the rapid conclusion I’m coming to.
A friend of mine recently asked me to help her hunt down a floor lamp for a dark and shadowy corner of her living room but, with a new baby recently arriving, one that wouldn’t break the bank.

I’m taking whatever positives, in terms of living room progress, I can this week. Remember how I’ve been saying that the plasterer was coming on May 2nd and how I was worried that was cutting it fine for the ceiling to dry out sufficiently to paint before the reveal? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha. Guess who didn’t come on May 2nd… *insert more hysterical laughter*.
