Light it up!

    I love the way pendant lights look. That second brushed nickel one is really nice and your window is perfect for a nice hanging lamp.

    Home Depot has more styles than I thought they would! I love the look!

  3. I was just on Pinterest last night looking for inspiration for over the sink lighting! We have a pretty nice pot light up there now….but I’d love to have a pendant. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. Cool. Do share your $5 find.

      Stay tuned. I will reveal all on Monday after we tackle the project. Want to make sure it works before patting myself on the back. 🙂

    10 years ago, I asked an electrician if he could convert the existing pot lights over my island to hanging pendants. He said it couldn’t be done, which seemed crazy to me at the time. I should have “invented” some conversion kits back then, and made some money. They seem to be everywhere now. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    I can’t believe these are so cheap!! I love the last one on the right for your kitchen, however, I’m torn about the chain versus the straight cording.

    Oooh – I can’t wait to see how the project turns out. We are moving to a new rental that has recessed lighting in the kitchen and i’d love to give it a go. For my personal taste, I would go with the nautical mini pendant light. I can’t wait to see what you choose.

    We have some totally terrible 80s track lighting over our sink. I’m saving up for a major gut renovation of that room (trust me, it NEEDS it) but I’m seriously considering doing a mini-redo sometime next year. I wonder if I would be able to DIY a transition from track lighting to pendants over the sink??

    Can’t wait to see what you chose- and your cabinet hardware is gorgeous!

    Oh too funny – we’re doing the opposite at our house. We have a spot wired for a pendant over our sink but we’re converting it to a can. But we don’t have much room for a pendant there and we already have two pendants in the room! 🙂

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
