Saying Goodbye to the Library Light I Never Had

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Woe is me.
I just had to say a tearful goodbye to my secret crush - the library light. Take a look at these photos and then dare to tell me that you're not in love.

We are still planning to have a little built-in desk area in the basement. There was a moment in time when I decided that I needed to have a library light over the middle desk area (where I am planning to have some open shelving)(kind of like in the above picture).

However, Alex thought a library light over open shelving would look weird. And...... it was too late. Right around the time I asked him about the light fixture he had just finished the wiring for all the lighting in the basement.

Now that drywall is up, it is officially too late. Sniff, sniff.

I can't be too sad though. Did you hear the part about drywall being up?!?!?!?! It's only been three years and counting, so this is very exciting news.

And, if I had to, I guess I could always stick one of these or a lot of them somewhere in the house:

Have you shed a tear over a light fixture before? You have?!? I'm not crazy!?!?! Phew. ;)

P.S. I cannot for the life of me find any original sources for those pictures. What is up with that?!?

  2. Well I'd be sad too - it's a terrific-looking light. However, other lighting ideas will pop into your head I'm sure! Lovely photos in your post today - have a great weekend!
