So many houses have cookie-cutter lighting (because it’s the cheapest, I’m guessing.) Dear old Bruce (our former house-owner) left us with some pretty decent lights, but also some boring ones. The dining room lamp was the first to go:
Some of you may protest that it’s a perfectly good light (and this type hangs in your dining room!)…….you’re right. But when I went to an antique store, I fell in love with a rusty, blue-and-white dining room lamp. The price wasn’t right, so I passed it by. BUT, months later, the shop went out of business, and there was MY light (half-off!). Thankfully Josh tolerates a little bit of wiring and fussing, and it was worth it!
