Once we tore down the wall [that you see below] in the eat-in kitchen the lighting position was no longer over an eating area. I knew I wanted to have an electrician come out and give us a bid on moving the locations of the boxes but I have been slow to contact one. Even when we finally did contact one he never called us back.
I finally decided to just get the World Market lantern lights and call it a day. For less than $300 for all three, I thought it was a pretty good deal to have functioning and easy on the eyes lighting once and for all. It's funny because I just saw Young House Love sprung for the same pendants in their hallway, too!
Of course there's still a chance that we'll get an electrician out here to give us a bid to move the kitchen/dining room lights, but I'd like him to first quote us a bid about putting a ceiling light in Theron's room, the same in the guest room, and two lights in the master bath. Those are more of a priority in my book.
All in due time I suppose. It's hard when you have a wish list a mile long and a bank account that doesn't quite match. Haha!
Slowly but surely we're making some good progress! Next on our agenda is staining the table my father-in-law made for us! The buyers of our first home negotiated that the first table stay with the house, so my FIL made a bigger and better one for this space. He's pretty amazing, guys.
Hope you guys have a happy hump day!
