So, then we went into this huge Walmart in Corsicana and I couldn't believe it but they had an Ott-Lite! I paid the $79.99 and took it home. I was sooo excited! Hmmmm. Turns out it is only a 13W which translates into about a 65W incandesant bulb. I've been doing a whole lot of reading on the CFL bulbs here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_fluorescent_lamp
This is the Walmart Ott-Lite. I will be returning it.
This is the IKEA lamp which I am taking to my daughter's this weekend and going to give it to her for her birthday. Kinda cheap, huh? But she needs a lamp in her spare bedroom for her guests to read by and it should be great for that. And I'm the guest who needs a lamp to read by.
So, even as I type, hubby is on his way to Home Depot for this baby http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=100050643&amp;amp;langId=-1&catalogId=10053&srccode=cii_1038957&cpncode=10-43215609-2&cm_mmc=shop_comp-_-yahoo-_-27-_-100050643
I may have totally gone out of my mind. In the space of a few weeks I have bought 4 floor lamps! And of course, I still have my old floor lamp to dispose of....
