I finally found a small shelf that will fit in my room so I can setup some lavas on it. :) Maybe 10 or so. I wanted to have this in place before winter so I could enjoy watching several lamps during the cold winter months.
As you can see, there's a window to the right of the lamps, but those curtains are always closed. However, to the left of this photo is another window, and you can see the light that's shining in this morning. I don't think that strip of light will reach the bookshelf my lamps will be on, but I"m going to keep looking at it this morning.
Just wondering what people's experiences have been displaying their lava in rooms with windows where light comes in. Anyone experienced any fading? I am so paranoid about any of the liquid fading, but I really want some lamps in my room and this is about the only spot they'll fit. I suppose I could switch where the wicker hamper is with this shelf, but then I can't see them from bed. ;)
Any thoughts, experiences or opinions would be much appreciated!
No opinions? Anyone?
This shelf won't get direct sunlight, but sunlight will enter the room through one window. I guess I'll keep my eye on them.
Well it seams as though the light is only shining directly on the shelf in the morning and its not constently in direct sunlight so I think it should be ok.
in my living room I have the plastic window cling that looks like stained glass( comes in a few different styles) Got it from Home Depot.. and comes in rolls so can be cut to size of window glass.. a bit pricey but not to bad... they are great cause light still comes through but not direct sun.. very very easy to apply and can be removed in seconds and re used..
I sport the ever classy tin foil in my bedroom...aka the Lava Love Cave..lol
I have never done shelves myself at least not yet but I've experienced fading even without sunlight as a factor. I typically put mine on dressers, entertainment centers, counter tops randomly everywhere.
I put the brown bags that you get to bring Ice cream home in, when not in use during the day I cover them.
