I finally made a lighting decision in my boy's room. If you remember back in February I posted about how I was having second thoughts about the light fixture I had originally planned to use in the room. You all came to my rescue in a big way helping me to make a decision. In fact, it was Lisa from Shine Your Light that recommended I think about using a metal barn light and guess what?
See, I read each and every comment! I found this light fixture at The Home Depot for $24.88!!!! It's actually $5 less than the Ikea fixture I had originally chosen, and I didn't have to drive almost 2 hours to bring it home either! I'm really happy with my decision. It feels boy-ish and not too Star Wars-y but totally fits in nicely. I'm also a BIG fan of the vintage light bulb which I also bought at The Home Depot.
The new light is so much better than the old tract light that was there before.
The best part is while this new light fixture should work with his decor for years to come, having only paid $24.88 I won't feel bad at all if I ever decide to make a change.
So a big thanks to all of you for helping me sort things out and finally make a decision. Now I can move on and maybe, just maybe, actually finish this room! In case you missed it, here's the post on how I painted this ceiling.
While I'm thanking all of you, I really want to thank my friend Cassie from Primitive and Proper for the sweet and totally unexpected gift package she sent me this week! She knows me so very well!
Ack! I can't even handle the horse-y goodness! I can not wait to finish the desk area I'm planning to create in the guest room so that I can put this pencil-holding horse on top. My daughter laid claim to the other one. My love of horses has rubbed off on her in a major way. Thank you so much Cassie for your sweet friendship!
In fact, I feel like a terrible blog friend because I totally forgot to let you know that Denise from Pink Postcard invited me to guest post the other day. Please hop over and say hello. Denise was one of my very first blog friends. I'm over there talking about some outdoor spray painting projects.
Last (I know I'm all over the place today), next week is my kids spring break. While I do have some fun stuff planned for the blog ( I actually scheduled posts - crazy right?!), I won't really be around blog land much. I plan to spend as much time as possible doing fun things with my kiddos! These fun things involve pancakes, black bears, and Dolly Parton. Who knows what I'm talking about?
Have a great weekend and GO CATS!!!!!!
