Ok, I finally found and bought THE LIGHT for the living room. Remember, this post, when I talked about lighting and wanting a more eclectic feel for our living room? Well, I was seriously leaning towards this light from Ballard Designs. I felt like it was eclectic and would help bring a touch of something different to our living room. Well, I kept pondering it, because the price was a bit steep.
Then, I found THE LIGHT and I mean, the perfect one. Of course, the perfect light is not so perfect with a $500 price tag. Insert sad face here. I looked everywhere online and could not find it cheaper than $460. Then, I went to a local lighting store and they were able to make a better deal and knock it down to $400. Still, $400 for a light. Sad face still inserted here.
So, that all happened in September. Well, luck finally turned my way. I found THE LIGHT on Ebay and made an offer. The seller and I went back and forth on the price, but I finally got it. I ended up getting over $200 off the original price. Did you know that you can go back and forth with prices and counter offers on Ebay? I haven’t bought much on there for a few years, so I guess I’m behind the curve. I’ll definitely be heading there from now on. I’m a bargainer at heart, so Ebay sellers beware!
Ready to see this beauty?
This is what the living room looked like in Feb of this year after we made the paint stick light but before we made the covered bulletin board:
Here we are now :
Big difference, right? I feel like we are moving in the right direction.
Oh, and here’s a picture; just because I want to say… “she glows.”
