I admit it. I change out the lamps on my dining room buffet seasonally. (Don't you judge me! It could be worse! I could be addicted to handbags or shoes or seasonal dishes! Leemealone!)
Anyhow, for Halloween, the black with the woven shades needed to go, and the silver with the white shades had to come back out...
I took a fuzzy little black feather boa that I got at Michael's or Joann's, cut it up, and attached it to the top and bottom edges of the lampshades with double stick tape.
It Halloweens up the place.
(...although Handsome Hubby says they remind him of the Leg Lamp in A Christmas Story...)
I think they help the over-all look of the buffet.
