I came home with four - FOUR - lights and a new lampshade, no wood. (in my defense, the lampshade has been on the list for ages, but I kept forgetting). AND, one of the lights is for my sister, so I really only came home with three lights and a lampshade. Would it sound better if I told you I only spent $25 on three lights??? And no, they weren't the cheapest things I could find either - Lowe's was having a HUGE clearance!! Yay me! At that price I couldn't pass them by.
Despite the fact that the boys and I are living in a rental house right now I could NOT pass up a new light fixture (wait until you see the before picture!) and for $7 who can argue? Onto the pictures!
I am in L-O-V-E with school house light fixtures. Like this one from Restoration Hardware:
But, I can honestly say I do not like the $139 price tag. No sir. Not for me. But $7?? Yep! Sign me up.
The hall light was the same as this kitchen light (I forgot a before photo of the hallway...too excited to replace it!):
Nice, huh? Comes complete with a clip on plastic shade (bugs are free).
Here's the $7 steal I got from Lowe's.
What a deal, right? While I was there I also scored this new pendant light for above the kitchen sink ($8 for this one instead of $42):
Here's that beautiful before light again:
And it even works! (I've never installed a light before - today I installed two! Yay me!!)
The third light is a wall mounted swing arm lamp for the guest bedroom. ($10 instead of $41). I'll install it another day. My boys are up now, naptime is over..time to get back to work!
Have a great Tuesday!
