Kitchen Table Lighting

Before we purchased our new home we knew we wanted to set some goals for when things would be completed. 

The ONLY updated fixtures in the whole home were a blue fluorescent blade fan In the babies room and a halfway installed fan in the master! 

So...obviously updating lighting was first on the list. 
The day after closing I ran in a neat outlet store and chances upon this. 
The original plan was to order the lantern from Ballard for over the table. 

This one...

Then I found this.
Upon a quick google search I discovered this was a slamming deal!!! 
It was a nice heavy fixture and I knew it would look great over our new kitchen table!! 
and at $69.99 I knew I was saving a few bones :)

We were able to hang it about the second week we moved in and we love it! 

This is one of the first things you see when walking in the front door and I feel like it really sets the tone for the whole house! 

Next up lighting over the sink and in the back door hallway. 

Once we complete lighting I hope to share the style boards for each room and mix in some kids posts here and there.

Strap in... going to be LOTS of newness this fall... 

I have done a people choose on my instagram account with a thing here and there and I like having people's opinion!! Really!! i do!! I can usually narrow down to a few favorites then it takes me weeks to finally commit to something.
