End Table Update

I found it! The perfect lamp to go with my new table! Taaa daaaa:

I spent a healthy chunk of this weekend making it look just so.  Hmm. Don’t mind the cord. I haven’t figured out what to do about that, yet! And see that little riser under the leg? That’s because the floor in my 100+ year old house slopes waaaayyyy down. Good times!

And here’s a detail shot:

I found it at Pottery Barn, and couldn’t be happier. Even Mr. J likes it (miracle of miracles!).

The sad thing is, as cute as this little display is, I’ll be dismantling it soon. With the big move coming up, I’m getting a little nostalgic about leaving our slanty little abode. I’ve spent so much time getting it just right, and now I’m going to have to start over! Trying not to be too daunted by that prospect.

And in unrelated news, I’ve had a friend (or two) come over and ask where my little piggy ended up, so I knew it was time for an update. Here he sits, atop a stack of books in our TV cabinet:

Awwww. Or should I say OINK!


  1. I love it! What a great setup you've got going there and the lamp is perfect for the table! You can tape the cord along the back side leg of the table...that may work.

    I know what you mean about getting nostalgic for moving. I have the same feeling. I don't want to leave my happy home. But we do get to redecorate!! When are you moving?

  2. tape! genius! thanks, kate! we're moving in early july, so this will probably be the last thing i do to the place. but yay for new houses and new beginnings! :)
