Let There Be Light!

It's been confirmed by an electrician that the original owner's of our house screwed us out of ever having recessed lighting in our family room. I mean, it's doable, but only if we want to have 27 holes drilled into the ceiling and then have 27 drywall patches that I'm sure will be glaringly noticeable. So,  I quickly launched Plan B, which meant taking down the existing ceiling fan and putting up a drum shade for light because the 3 lamps in the room are not cutting it. (This lady needs good lighting for all those games of Trouble that I beg the kids to play.)

Sometimes, when trying to fix one situation, you create a whole new situation. Our current situation is having 3 coordinating light fixtures, which to some isn't a situation at all, but I never intended things to be this matchy matchy.  That's what happens when you change light fixtures one at a time without a clear vision. I have 2 fixtures left to pick out on the main floor (kitchen pendants and a foyer chandelier) and I MUST change things up a bit. 

Here's a few that have caught my eye for the kitchen. I'm a bit torn because I like the look of clear glass pendants, but I'm afraid seeing the lightbulb will be glaring and harsh, so I'm trying to find alternatives. Decisions, decisions!

I'm not kidding around about Trouble being my favorite game. What's your favorite game?

  1. Love all of these options and especially the bottom left! That would be my choice...the clear glass pendants would be hard to keep clean in my opinion.
