Let there be Light

Sometimes things come together as planned!  Today, I share one of these fortunate times.

When we moved in, we inherited a modern light fixture in the dining area.

Gabs Bday 037

It was a dominant fixture in the main part of the house.  It is a nice light fixture, it’s just a bit too mod for the 1900’s farm house we got going on here.

I had my heart set on a light from Ballard Design.  I was thrilled when I found it at the outlet this weekend.

My free electrician and apprehensive Hubby got busy.  I’ll let the pictures tell the story!

Looks better already.

To add to my delight, Hubby installed a dimmer.  Oh, life is good.

Look at the glow and the design it gives off in this little space.  Just peaceful.

What a great way to end the week!  Hopefully, my good luck will roll through the weekend.

Hope yours is good!  Follow on FB for updates.
