Well, I’m back to share our new dining room light! We were definitely ready to swap out our old light and hang up the new one I found on clearance at Home Depot. I’d been admiring it for a really long time, kind of like our new living room light, although this one was much cheaper! 😀
When we installed our new dining room shelves, I knew there was no way our old light fixture was going to look right with them. Anthony never liked the light from the start, so he was more than happy to do a light switcheroo. And I must admit, this one looks much better and fits the house, and our whole look, perfectly.
Here’s our old light fixture…
Basically night and day difference. The new light is much bigger, so it fits the room better and plays as an anchor.
I was completely lucky to find it sitting on the clearance end cap. Our local Home Depot has a tendency to put some of my favorite lights on clearance (just like our breakfast nook light), so I make sure to check it every time I’m in the store, which is admittedly, quite often. 😀
I love the detail and its open appearance. I really didn’t want anything too visually heavy, or solid.
And I wanted to make sure you could still see the shelving through it…
I also love, love, my new view from the kitchen sink…
Now, I feel like our dining room is ready for fall decorating… With all the changes we’ve made, it’s one of my favorite rooms and one of the rooms I’m most excited about decorating this year.
Loads of fall decorating coming your way soon!
P.S. I traded Anthony a yummy, delicious, homemade peach crisp for him to hang the new light. Not only do we both love the new light, but the peach crisp was amazing and fabulous and I enjoyed it while sitting under our new light! 😀
