The New Light

So, it was clearly time to get rid of the ceiling fan with the granny flower my basket.  After lots of research, I fell in love with like 10 online options.  Unfortunately, I felt the need to see the thing in person before actually buying it. 

I woke up one day, and decided to see how a fancypants light ( it’s a technical term) would look in our kitchen.  So I drew this one and decided that it was just too fancy for us.



We were gearing up for a last minute birthday soiree the next day.


I finally drove to Lowes and bought a light.  I needed it now.

So down came the old one.


Boo yah! So long granny fan!

I really love this puppy from Restoration Hardware.



But the $750 price tag wasn’t music to my ears.

So I found it’s inexpensive ($150) cousin at Lowes and skipped all the way home!  Okay, we drove, but if I could have skipped, I would have 🙂 .


I am so happy with this choice.  It just feels perfect.  Plus, it beats the heck out of the hanging Nana basket.  I bought 2 small potted trees at Ikea for $15 each to put by the window.  I feel like it’s kind of Havana-ish now.  I love it!

    • Hey Michi!! Glad to hear from you 😀 When we moved in 11 months ago, I had no clue how long it would take to start getting the house to the way we wanted it. It’s definitely a process, but so worth it when it starts to come together.

  5. Mind…I just love what you and Anthony did in the dining room!!! love the new window and that light!!! I love Charlottes head band, she loves them, I know this, because???? She doesn’t freak out with something on her head!! Love you and keep sharing with us all you idea’s! xo T

  6. I love it! It looks awesome! Lowe’s has really stepped it up with their light fixtures, I find myself craning my neck every time I’m in there to check them all out.

    • I was very ANTI-LOWES and ANTI-HOME DEPOT because I didn’t want “contracter” style generic fixtures. I wanted something different. I almost fell on the ground when I saw this among a sea of frosted glass lampshaded candelabras!

  7. LOVE the new light!!! Angled ceiling problem resolved!

  8. Me likey too! I’m loving the whole look that’s transpired. Very nice!
