Yesterday I said how I love antique lighting, which I definitely do, but I’m also drawn to industrial/retro/barn lighting. My kitchen is less country than the rest of my house and a bit more retro…at least that’s what I’m aiming for. Unfortunately, I made a mistake with the paint color (I now want the same color, but one shade lighter and one degree less shiny) but I’ll have to live with it for a while because Josh is NOT painting it again, lol. It’s still a big improvement from the totally green kitchen. Yes, the walls AND ceiling were green.
So on to the light. The kitchen has a peninsula at which Josh and I always eat our meals. Above it was track lighting, which was nice, but blah…..
So we took it down, sold it on Craig’s List, and purchased this light from Lowe’s:
I didn’t like the thin white cord that it was hanging from, and so I covered it with twine:
