Hi, I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend.
So here are my new lights in my Kitchen:
The lights hanging before were these champagne colored tulip shades. They were pretty, just not my style.
I knew all I needed to do was switch out the glass shades, since I didn't mind the hanger part as much.
I found nothing when I went to Lowes. So next I tried Re-Store, where I found these little white shades.
The only problem was that they were too short, the light bulbs were showing. Not good.
So then I tried out this Wicker lampshade I got at Ikea a while back, and I loved it!
But the problem here was that I had only one Ikea lampshade, and I got it when it was on clearance. Seriously it was like 5 bucks Why oh Why did I not pick up 2? Aaauugh!
So from here I was pretty attached to the idea of having Wicker lampshades. I told my Lovely mother in law to keep her eyes out for some while she was out and about........ And she found these!!
She got them at Home Goods for I think 6 bucks each. They are actually food covers and have a net lining. She carefully cut off the top loop and then using a knife cut out a small hole on the top of each one.
We then screwed them on using the already existing plastic bolt, and now I have two awesome new light shades. I think they are perfect for my kitchen. They give something extra to the room.
Today I look like 100 pictures of my kitchen. I plan on sharing more of them with you next time, but here is a little sneak peek.
Thanks for stopping by,
