It's Hot on 5th Ave! We need SHADE!

Okay, so my first post was about my love of Aidan Gray. If I didn't have three furniture loving dogs, I would own every single thing on that website! So given that my furniture can't be snow white at this moment in time, I have to settle for the accessories only! Where to start? Lighting and shades of course!

I went off in a search for something similar to their lamps and came up with only one solution. While shopping in, drum roll please, TARGET (can you believe it?) I stumbled across this linen lampshade. Love at first sight! I immediately thought about Aidan Gray and thought the price was just right! Instead of purchasing the nearly $600 lamp from AG, I came up with my own version.

I set off in search for the perfect base. While shopping at a local antique store, I came across the perfect base...but the shade HAD to go! Here was my inspiration....

And here is my own personal version...

Hope you've enjoyed today's tip! I'd love to help you find your own personal shade on 5th ave!


  1. Welcome to the blog world! I have a pair of Aidan Gray lamps on my bedside tables. I think I need to make a trip to Target ASAP!

  2. Great job on the lamp, sissy! Love that linen shade!

  3. TDD...I am obsessed with Aidan Gray! Which lamps to do you have?
