I really had no intention of changing out my kitchen light. The one that is there is fine and I spray painted it black about two years ago and I like it. But today I took a trip to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in South Bend, Indiana - I love this place! It is about 10 minutes from the University of Notre Dame. It had the most awesome molding too but I didn't have a way to get it home today. I will be back!
In their lighting department, there was this gorgeous light hanging there. It was listed as a carriage light and was NEW in the box. It is black and has beveled glass. It was only $35! It looks like it will be perfect for over the kitchen table. And I joined their preferred club for $5.00 and got another 25% off! SWEET! I also bought a new 5 x 7 area rug for only $36.95 I am going to use for my kitchen but I am going to give it a slight makeover with some fabric paint.
The light is quite large at 32" in length, but I love the look of an oversized lantern over a table.
I am still trying to decide on a kitchen paint color. I thought I had it all figured out with ICE RINK by Martha Stewart but then I was looking through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and found HEAVEN ON EARTH by Benjamin Moore. I only want to to this once so I am taking my time to make sure it is the perfect color.
|Martha Stewart: ICE RINK|
|Benjamin Moore: Heaven on Eart|
But now I am totally motivated because I want to put up my light so the paint color decision needs to get done. More updates to come...
