New Foyer Lights

I guess my last post (and looking at inspirational blogs) got my butt in gear because the next day after posting, I replaced the two lights in the foyer that were staring at me screaming, “Replace me!  I’m ugly!” and then took three weeks to post…  Sorry!   The holidays were hectic is my excuse 🙂 .

Here is what the lights looked like before:

Ugly Light!Typical builder grade ’80s light.  Ugly right?

Here’s the replacement:Middle Light

I had a hard time finding a style that I liked that complimented but didn’t outshine (see what I did there :), the crystal foyer light that I love.  I finally found one that I liked at Home Depot that was not too pricey, as lights can get super expensive.  These were $140 a piece (I ordered two) which is not too bad.

The installation was as expected- an hour for the first one and 20 minutes for the second since I had practice with the first.  By the time I was done, I felt like I had gotten a good arm workout and because of that, I didn’t go to the gym.  HA, I crack myself up!  I wasn’t going to go anyway…

Anyhoo, here’s how they look now:

Two Lights

 

And another angle, at the front of the foyer:

Front LightThe silver matches the crystal light and the shapes are also the same, so I thought they complimented each other nicely.

Next up is to find a new rug for the foyer as well as some nice artwork and to move the coral chair out of the room… sorry chair, it was nice while it lasted…
