Finally, a new entry light!

Since the day we moved in, this is what has been hanging in our entry to greet our guests:

And yes, the canopy has been hanging like that for one year (we moved in Memorial Day weekend last year!!)

My MIL has suggested many times that I should just take it down, spray paint it and put it back up until I can get what I want. But I live in the camp of "I'm not going to do it until I can do it right" (I'm a stubborn Taurus, that's for sure).

Well this weekend we finally switched it out!! Hooray! And I looove it :)

Charlotte always like to be a part of the action.

( you can see the chairs I won from Blogfest in the background!! One came missing a leg, I'm just waiting for them to send another. Like how I rigged it? ha ha)

We were pretty proud that we installed the light ourselves.. something we never really have done before. (Although Matt did most of the work.. thanks Matt!!)

I've loved this pendant for a while. I used it in my very first full project:



I got mine from Worlds Away (to the trade). If you are interested in purchasing one, email me!

We also tried to install this IKEA pendant in our laundry room but it just didn't work out (we need more of a flush mount).



Too bad, it's SUCH a good looking light and the price is amazing. I'll just admire it from afar in Erika's kitchen.

Once we get a new light installed in the laundry room I'll do a full details + sources post!

  3. That's one of my favourites - it looks beautiful!  I'm always surprised (and pleased) when I manage to DIY something tricky like that - it gives you a great sense of accomplishment.  Nicely done!
