The lighting saga continues. Ha. I’m usually a pretty decisive person or at least I think I am, but when it comes to decorating I just can’t make quick decisions. I guess that can be a good thing or a bad thing, it just depends on your perspective. I’m definitely an over-analyzer (over-researcher). But, I have made strides in making another purchase for our kitchen. Yay! If you want to check out our first kitchen lighting board, find it here.
Really, I like all of them. The ‘above table’ two are definitely splurge items, but I feel like every room needs a splurge item. I go cheap on a ton of stuff, but I do like to splurge a bit here and there. =) Luke said that he wasn’t a big fan of number two. He felt like the chandelier was a bit weird. So, number two is out. I can’t justify a splurge item if he doesn’t like it. That brings us to number one and number two.
I made my mood board a few weeks’ ago and then I found another option. A few days ago, I ran in to Habitat for Humanity to pick up a mid-century dresser that I had passed on (which they still had and I bought!) and found this:
I know it definitely doesn’t compete with the ‘above table’ options in the mood board above, but I definitely think it has potential. It kinda reminds me of this:
The lantern above and the pendant light (#1 and #3 in the mood board) are made by the same company. Interesting, right? I’m hoping to make a few changes to the old-school one that I picked up and just see how it looks above the table. If we don’t like it, then it’s no big deal and I can keep saving for my dream light. =)
Hope you all have a great weekend! We are off to the lake again… one of my favorite things to do in the summer.
