At Last I’ve Seen the Light!

We have lived without a light over our dining room table for about 4 months now. All that has been there is the electrical wiring sticking out of the ceiling. Attractive, I know, but I didn’t want to spend money on just any old pendant; I wanted it to be something fun and unique that I could stare at with love and affection on my spare time.

I finally found the one I’ve been looking for at World Market! It was marked down 50% and I had a coupon so I got it for 34.99. Not too shabby. I liked this shade because it helps bring balance to many modern/ brand new furniture and decor in the house with it’s somewhat rustic outside.

Our table is not placed directly under the light socket so we needed to add a hook to move it over. The hook was originally gold but I painted it with ORB (oil-rubbed bronze) spray paint so it matched the other fixtures and hardware in the house.

Then my hunk of a husband put his handiness to work and installed the light. IMG_1669

Ta-da! It’s finally up! No more squinting to see our food at dinner! IMG_1687

My favorite thing about this shade is the blue color underneath.
