So the last month, we have been in fix it mode. You know, the boring stuff like appliance repair, and appliance repair...and oh, and appliance repair! But that doesn't mean that I haven't had some fun finding some great things. For example, the seller decided to strip the house of a few items that needed to be replaced, like the ceiling light fixture in the foyer. Yep, he took lighting. Oh well, this means that I get pick my own.
I set out to all my favorite consignment stores looking for the perfect chandy. I didn't look at antique places or thrift shops for this. I needed something a little more special, newer and such. But you know me, I am a bargain person and I was not going to pay full retail of this item! Oh no! It took me a few days to nail it. In fact, I found this one day in a consignment store over by my daughter's former school (remember I talked about that 3 hours of driving in my last blog post) and am glad that I stopped to check out the place. I am super duper excited about the lighting fixture that I found. I just got it installed in the foyer and took these snap shots to show you.
It's not for everyone, but it is for me. I'm kinda glad the guy who sold me this house took the light fixture.
