We moved into our newly-built home just over 3 years ago. Of course, the builder included the UGLIEST light fixtures throughout the house. So, I am constantly on the prowl for lovely new light fixtures to replace the old. At this point, I have replaced 17 of 21 fixtures. I am getting SO CLOSE to being done!
Recently, I stopped by the ReStore for Habitat for Humanity in the small town where I grew up while visiting my mother. I never know what I am going to find there, but this time I SCORED:
Okay. In this state, it's pretty ugly. Actually, it is probably uglier than the glass ball currently hanging in my laundry room. But I looked deeper and saw some potential.
And look at that PRICE! Even if didn't work out, I hadn't wasted a ton of $$$$.
Now, we all know what a can of spray paint can do and I was hoping it could work its magic on my wooden lantern.
Ta-da! So what do you think? Not bad for $15.00, eh?? It's already hung in my pink laundry room - the next step in this room's transformation. I know - the bulb is kind of ugly, but I like the energy-saving bulbs. And really, when the lantern is on, there is just a sunny glow and you can't see the bulb anyways.
I'd love to hear what you think. Please leave a comment and think about becoming a FOLLOWER!! I love logging in each day and seeing so many new friends stopping by!
