After a year and a half of owning our home (10 months of living here) we have finally replaced all of the interior lights. Let me start by sharing a few of the lights included with the home purchase.
If you’ve ever purchased interior lights you know how expensive (and time consuming) this process can be. We originally tried to eliminate some of the cost by purchasing a less expensive chandelier for the dining room, but after seeing it in the room it wasn’t the right fit. Back to the store it was.
Did we splurge? Yes. Was it worth it? Definitely.
I love the way this light turned out. The only thing missing from the dining room is the china cabinet we purchased a few weeks ago (it’s still a work in progress), and a table full of good food with our friends and family.
The reading area light was purchased from a garage sale for $5. Although it served its purpose, I needed something that would coordinate and not overpower the new chandelier in the dining room.
Similar to other rooms, we installed a temporary fix in the kitchen when we moved in. Instead of purchasing a new kitchen light, we purchased two matching lights for the hallways and used the existing hallway light in the kitchen.
Lastly, the two new hallway lights tie in nicely with the oil rub bronze in the dining room (this light is brown in person, not red as the picture appears).
And there you have it. For sources on where to purchase the lights visit the links below. Be sure to also check out the DIY chandelier in our guest bedroom.
