Another decorating dilemma that was stressing-me-out-biggy-time was finding a light fixture for the baby's room. It turns out that buying 5000 white picture frames eats up your decorating budget so there wasn't much left for a fancy-dancy light fixture from Schoolhouse Electric, Restoration Hardware, or Barnlight Electric. (Eye candy over there, much?)
In my last post about possible light fixtures, I had found four fairly inexpensive, local lighting options that I was debating. You peeps helped me narrow it down to two of them:
|Schoolhouse Light - Home Depot|
|Fabric Pendant Light - Lowes|
Except as my luck would have it, the schoolhouse lights from Home Depot online were/are back-ordered and the fabric pendant light from Lowes online was only for Lowes.com and not Lowes.ca.
Waaaaaaaaaaaah. I just knew the world was against me.
Alex and I decided to take a trip to Lowe's a few nights ago to look at their outdoor furniture cushions and I decided to walk the lighting aisles one last time to see if there was anything, anything I could use for Ninja's room.
(P.S. Aren't I dramatic with all the italics?)
That's when I saw a mini-version of the fabric pendant light that was supposedly only available at Lowes in the States. I checked the box and it was the same brand and everything (Good Earth Lighting). We snatched it up and installed it yesterday.
Dude has a light! Now I'll be able to find his teeny tiny bum to change his teeny tiny diapers.
Here is a picture with the old light fixture:
Here is a picture of the new light fixture:
I still have to get Alex to twist the shade around so that you can't see the seams but overall I think it fits in nicely with the room. In my dream of all dreams I would have had some kind of rustic / cottage-y metal light but for $59 and off-the-shelf I'm pretty happy with how this one looks instead.
Now, 'member that tiny diaper that I mentioned?
That is one seriously small bum! ;)
