As the new year rolled around, so did Graham and I’s lease renewal on our little rental. We really enjoyed living in our rental over the past year and realized last Fall that we had no desire to leave any time soon. After making the decision to stay, and signing another year’s lease, I realized this house was going to be more than just the temporary home I thought it was going to be. It was time to really cozy up and give the house some updates I had been putting off!

One of my goals was to make our living room more cohesive. It had started off as a modge podge of leftovers from our previous home and eventually grew to a room that I am quite proud of. To see more from my latest living room makeover, click [here]. Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago. I got an email from Kirkland’s looking to work together again and I was SO excited. Last Spring I put together a “Look for Less” post for Kirkland’s, so needless to say, I was ecstatic about another collaboration. After browsing around their online store, and drooling over just about everything, I decided to order their Sonoma Distressed Floor Lamp.  I knew this was going to fit perfectly in our recently updated living room and I couldn’t wait to get it in!


I placed the order on a Saturday and got my lamp in the next week. I was shocked how quickly it arrived. I immediately opened the box and was happily surprised with how large the lamp actually was. The base looked so elegant and expensive! I couldn’t believe it only cost $99!

To show you what a great deal this really is, here are two examples of some designer look-a-likes:


Pretty crazy, huh? They both hover around the $500 mark! Yeah, I’m pretty happy with my $99 look-a-like;)

And here are a few snapshots of my new lamp in my space. It sits right near our entryway, so it’s the first beautiful piece you see when you walk through the door!!





So what do you think? I am so happy with it and I love how it fits perfectly with our living room updates. So what about y’all? Are y’all freshening up any of your spaces for the new year? If so, make sure to stop by Kirkland’s to find some amazing deals. You can also follow them on Facebook, PinterestTwitter and Instagram if you want to keep up on the latest deals. Speaking of Instagram… I just might have created an Instagram account for miss Bailey last night and you can follow her at @BaileyKitty :):):) I know. Crazy cat lady is now in FULL swing people! #sorryimnotsorry

Also, I have a really fun furniture makeover coming up on Thursday, so make sure to come back to see the reveal!

  1. I love your new lamp! I think it’s even better than the more expensive ones! I am looking forward to reading about all your house updates! I too live in a home that is a little small in square footage, so I love seeing all your ideas! Your blog gives me a lot of inspiration! Have a wonderful day!

  2. I love that lamp. I have been to Kirklands store, I didn’t know they have an online one. I have a second home that I rent out and I can tell you your landlord must be pleased to have someone like you renting. I had a bad renter and now have a good one. I almost don’t want to take the check every month. Almost.

    I was wondering if you were tired of this lamp and might be changing your decor since it has been awhile. I would love to buy this lamp from you. Kirklands doesn’t offer it anymore!
