It has been a bit of a win win here lately.. I feel like I have actually hopped back into blogging, getting comfortable with it again... and naturally, I want to blog about things we are up to around the house (this has always been my fave stuff to blog about).. so anyway, blogging about things around the house, makes me actually want to DO things around the house! A win win right!?
That brings us to the newest light addition. James hung it for me last night, when I am pretty darn positive that the only thing he wanted to do was crawl onto the couch with his book.. yep, awesome-ist hubby ever! Thank you babe! xoxo
The view from the veranda looking in..
I have wanted something with a little bit of 'funk' for this space.. something with a bit of glam, but on the simple side.. I know I know.. this light is far from simple lol. I also didn't want to break the bank on a light fixture for my craft room.. ya know? Which is why I stayed away from our one and only specialty lighting store hee heee! There is some pretty (expensive) stuff in there! ha! ;)
SO yeah.. I was at Home Depot, looking at the display and saw NOTHING. Then I decided to actually take a look at what they had in the boxes below.. and I saw this one! It was a small box, compared to the light.. so I almost skipped over it... so happy I didn't! The picture on the box was horrible, the box was small so it was hard to get an idea of size (I am so bad at visualizing measurements! lol).. and like I said, it wasn't on display! BUT, it was the closest I had found locally to what I pictured. I am so glad I took the chance on this one!
From the beginning, I had told myself I either wanted something round (our stand by Ikea dandelion light was always an option too).. or a bigger version of what we ended up putting in the laundry room, which is what this so perfectly is! Yay for good 'ol Home Depot! ;)
Now to clean up the room so I can share pics with you all.. or should I paint first? ha ha ha ...sooooo joking! hee!
