Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

My current lamp set up isn’t much of a set up as it’s just 3( of six because I don’t have room for the rest)lamps siting in a cluster on my vanity/desk. But I’ve decided to change this because a it will look better and b I would like to be able to display all of my lamps. Also I’m going to document iit because some people showed interest in seeing my lava lamp makeover( also I’m still in lock down and need something to do) I have three spaces in my room that I think would work which I will detail bellow. Feel free to post which one I would pick.

spot # one- above my vanity/desk remove my tree painting and put a shelf

pros -display all of them in one spot and it’s direct across from my bed so maximum viewage potential 

cons- it doesn’t leave much room for expansion because there are windows on either side of where the shelf would be plus I like my tree painting. 
spot # two - above the spare bed( yes I have a spare bed in my room) build shelf for lamps 

pros- plenty of room for expansion and still good viewage 

cons- I would have to take down the owl painting my sister gave me and would feel kinda bad( even thought it’s a bit creep and look like it watches me in my sleep)  

spot # three above my bed move my canvas and replace with shelf

pros- room for expansion and reflection could look cool in my vanity mirror.

con- Least viewage potential as it would be above my head.
I would love to hear your guys thoughts about which spot I should pick.  Also I’ll add pictures on a separate post because I can’t get them to work here

I think Keith has some solids ideas, after thinking about it , can’t to see what your progress! ,

Spot 1 or 2, but I would use spot 2.  It would minimize any draft problems with the windows, you have more space to work with, and still lets you get a good view of your lamps.  You could move the owl to the spot over your bed.  Whereever you decide to put the shelves, make sure the shelves are sturdy enough and as level as possible.  Plan ahead to mount the shelves at a comfortable viewing height.  Also you might want to use a power strip at the back of the shelf to plug the lamps in so make sure the shelf is deep enough.  

Hope this helps!  But whatever you decide you can always change it around later. :)

yea i thought it was a thicker canvas but after looking at it again it could be siting on the shelf or hung above it and still have room for lamps in front. i was thinking floating shelfing but its an outside wall so not sure if that's possible. so for that reason im still between one and two.

Sounds like a good idea ! , and I think you can keep then painting up

i keep the room around 73 f but if I go with spot one i would want to reseal the windows which i should probably do anyways

That’s definitely possible . But if the room is heated and window not draft shouldn’t be to big a problem

I could use both but I’m not sure if the drafty windows would make it harder for the lamps to warm up in the winter

I like spot one , however the con is a big one , but what if you can move the vanity so you can put multiple shelf’s up , or you could use the vanity and the shelf together to display them . 

also you might not need to move the painting all together just to hang the shelf then you can hang the painting and the lamps can be in front if them
