My Rooster Lamp from DG!

Hello everyone! Well, it’s almost Friday and the weather here has turned alot cooler 63 today and only 43 tomorrow…yikes! That’s a little to chilly for me, fall weather for sure!

The other day I had to run an errand and needed some change so I thought I’d stop in Dollar General and see what they had (I always find things there that you just wouldn’t think they’d sell, such as my zebra runner) so I go to the clearance section and what do my wondering eyes should appear but a rooster lamp!!! I’ve been wanting one, have one coming from Ebay, if she ever decides to send it, but alot smaller! This one was on clearance for $5.75 but when I got to the cashier it was……..drum roll…..$2.75! Here it is!

The lampshade is from Walmart for $9.99, didn’t know where I was going to put it but figured for that price I’d buy it!


Here is a close up of the shade! Neat huh? It’s from the BHG line!


A closer look at the bottom, funny thing was I didn’t even want to paint it, what’s up with that? LOL


As you can see it does look black from a distance! What a difference it made in the diningroom! See those vases sitting on the ledge of my hutch? Both are from GW!


So cute together! I got the smaller one for .59!


I also moved the floral arrangement here in front of my shutter in the entryway!


Hope you like it and check out your Dollar General, I don’t believe decorating should break the bank especially in this economy!

Thank you to all my new followers, I’ve been working so it’s been hard to get around to you but I will!

I’ll be at these parties today and tomorrow:

Potpourri Friday at 2805

Thrifty Thursday at Thrifty Decorating

Inspiration Friday at The Picket Fence

Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home

Feathered Nest Friday at The French Country Cottage

I LOVE the lamp and the shade is perfect for it! I haven't been in Dollar General in awhile...ours sells a lot of packaged food...I'll have to check out the clearance section. Love your Goodwill vases, too! Very pretty!

Have a great day!

What is not to love here...roosters, white pumkin center pieces, and just fall and warmth everywhere! I love it Rondell.

I really like your shutter on the wall. It's nice to bring an outdoor element inside and see it function in a different way. andrea@townandprairie

What an awesome lamp! I can't believe the price. I have never been in a DG, I think I really need to go to one--like tomorrow.

Love the rooster lamp!! My sister purchased that same one from our Dollar General about a month ago and I gave her a burlap shade that I had to put on it. I love to check out the home decor section there...sometimes you can find some great things at great prices.

Rondell, your dining room looks fantastic! Of course I love your new lamp! *great buy* Your centerpiece with the white pumpkin looks so good with your furniture. I love it! Autumn has arrived @ your house. I need to start decorating!

OMGoodness, I have the same lamp and I got mine at Dollar General! I'm so happy with mine too. I have mine in the kitchen. I love your lampshade. I think I might copy yours and see if our Wal-Mart has that shade.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Your lamp and sharde are so cute and so thrifty! I have looked for that shade but so far have been unable to find one.

Thanks for linking to Potpourri Friday. I appreciate your participation!

That's a great lamp! I can't believe you got the lampshade at Walmart! It does look really nice in your living room.

Hi Rondell...sorry you are still having comment trouble. I do recall someone saying now about the drop down, people have to changed their comment setting, it is nothing you can do on your end.

Kimberly said...

Love the lamp. For $8.00 that was a steal.
