Blinded by the...



Happy Monday!  I have a love/hate relationship with lighting.  I LOVE beautiful & unique fixtures, but I do not love the price tag that usually comes with them...  The main level of our house has 12 light fixtures and all 12 needed to be replaced.  We have crossed a couple off our list starting with my favorite World Market Orb Chandelier for only $112. 


Our kitchen now has recessed lighting {I need a new picture bc the ceiling has now been painted!}...  Four lights cost us $100. 


If you can just ignore all the ugliness around this next light then you will see my second favorite fixture.  This one I found at Target for $22! 


Alright, so I want to share a quick lighting DIY with you.  The hallway next to kitchen had this lovely chandelier hanging nice and low for my TALL Tan Man. 


I decided that we needed a flush mounted light and I really didn't want {one of these}.  I stumbled up this light at Habitat for Humanity Restore for $3 {and it was 20% off, holla}! 


First, I taped off the light with painters tape.  Then I sprayed the fixture with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint.  



 I am pretty pleased with my $9 flush mount!  I need to go back and clean it up, because we painted the ceiling this past weekend.  Hope y'all have a wonderful week!
