Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend! We’ve been relaxing at home, and working on projects…a typical weekend for us. 🙂
New Kitchen Pendant Lights
If you remember back to my industrial farmhouse pendant lights post in June, I was considering a lot of different options to replace the builder-provided pendant lights in my kitchen. Well, I finally decided on some new pendant lights, and we installed them yesterday! I decided to go with the Pottery Barn Paxton Glass Pendant (Medium Shade) because I wanted glass pendants, and I just love the texture and grayish-greenish color of the Paxton light. Here is a picture of our kitchen pendant lights before:
And here is our kitchen with the new pendant lights!
I love my new pendants! I think they are a great improvement over what we had before, and they look fabulous with our new faux beam!
New Mudroom Light
While we were at it, we also installed a new light in our mudroom over the weekend. I don’t have any pictures of our mudroom with the previous light, but let me just say that it was a standard boob light… like this one.
Now, I am not a fan of “boob lights,” and right now we have them all over the house because that’s what came in our builder’s light package. Once you hear them called boob lights, that’s all you will ever see when you look at them…upside down boobs! Sorry if I just ruined it for you, too. 🙂 I plan on replacing every single one in our house over time.
Here is a picture of our mudroom (at the time of the reveal when it was all nice and clean), and the next picture shows our new lantern-style pendant light. We chose the Carmen 4-Light Pendant from Wayfair. According to the reviews, the oil-rubbed bronze color is very light brown, so I went with the black color. However, that meant that I had to spray paint the inside of it black to match the outside frame. It wasn’t difficult…just an added little step to get the look I wanted.
So, new lights were popping up all over the Welsh household this past weekend! I just love changing out light fixtures…well, not the process itself, but the fabulous change that comes afterward! 🙂
