|Toby Fairley She tops the DREAM list!|
I finally replaced the entryway lighting! Like I have said before…
just because you can’t do everything at once…
does not mean you can’t still make things
sort of like “Interim Decorating”.
You know, you have your “DREAM” things and then you have the things you can afford. And what you can afford now may not be what you can afford later and visa versa.
And if you save and save then maybe you can chip away at your Dream list.
Such is the case with the lighting in my house.
When we moved in…there was one light downstairs…
the stories about those replacements…
and upstairs all of the original fixtures remained.
I rewired the upstairs fixtures
and we bought nice affordable (under $30) fixtures for the downstairs.
These fixtures served us well for 8 years.
In fact, I always loved this fixture (below), which I got on clearance at LOWES,
but I searched and searched and could
not find a match for the other end of the hall.
I ended up just getting a $50 very basic fixture…
until I could afford a new pair…
On the dream list I had a few different
|Gaudi Hanging Light
|Arch Top Light Circa Lighting $1260|
|Robert Abbey Pendant|
on sale! for $1470!
I settled on a nice affordable ($229/each)
“Delaney” Pendant Fixture
from Ballard designs.
The transaction was not perfect, the fixtures arrived with some issues, however, their Customer Service was great…
and now I have some GREAT LOOKING matching fixtures!!!!
Let there be Light! Now my entryway is so nice and bright.
A NEW (well, newer that 13 years with 250,000 miles) CAR!
I will leave you with a painting for my upcoming show!
