Dining room light switcheroo.

Once we slowly started to phase out the yellow in the dining room kitchen area I had one problem.

The yellow lighting.



Ick, it just ruined everything. It gave the new paint a definite yellow hue and it just wasn't us. I've been a big fan of seeded glass for a long time now. It's vintage and beachy and glamorous and isn't thick so it will let off the best amount of light possible. Which is something I want. I love me some light.




They're actually for fans but who's paying attention anyways right? All I know is they're 5.00 a piece and lovely. Look I finally, after YEARS fixed that light. I liked it lower, but to be honest my child likes to stand on the chairs and swing it, so it had to go up. Maybe one day we can lower it a tad but for now it works for our family and that's what really matters in design okay? Okay.



It also casts off the prettiest glow at night. And, I pinky swear I'm going to just make the first cut in those curtains and put them up this week. It's just hard, it's a lot of fabric and I go back and forth on it. :) But.. for now, I'm sure. So...I'm gonna do it ya'll. I'm gonna do it.

And it will be fabulous. Just like my pretty light.

I {LOVE} it! I have those same yellow-ish glass shades over my dining table onlt they hang in the opposite direction. I tried cute seeded glass shades on it, but they didn't fit right! Bummer.
