Holly Kay . . .My Bouillotte Lampshade
Hi, Holly Kay!
I just got back from the lampshade store. It was not my 1st choice of a shop, but the other one isn't open on Sundays . . the other is typically open only until 5, which is never an option for me.
They only had one type of shade that would work. Sadly, it had no gold lining. They weren't sure about ordering (the buyer was not in) and said it would take a month. There was also an issue with actually getting the lampshade on, and I bought an additional piece, as you can see. (I have both on in the pics, which is why it is so much taller.
This shade is bigger than yours. They had a size smaller as well but recommended this one. Not sure what you think. I just sort of wanted to be done with this whole thing, which is which is why I bought it . . .but I CAN exchange (only-- no returns) if you think it is OK. (It can be for something I order.)
Please excuse my wall color and holes in it! We had something braced there . . .will repair once I repaint, hopefully in July.
Just for comparison, I think this is the original shade that would have been on . . .it is definitely smaller. The upper portion (not sure what it's called . . .not the finial, exactly) is tall, though. Or maybe it's just that the shade is so low?
