Nursery Progress - Finally a Light Fixture

Sunday, April 8, 2012

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 and not 

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! ;)

    1. Nope, less than three weeks to go. AHHHHH! :S

  4. Oh my gosh things are looking so great in there! Congratulations on your little boy... and thanks for giving the rest of us some great nursery decorating inspiration : ) Love the stenciled wall!

  5. It goes great with everything in the nursery, such a tiny diaper but don't forget they grow out of those fast!

  6. Love how it's coming together! The light looks fantastic. Such a calmin palette.

  7. I love that light and everything else looks so cute! The stencilled wall is beautiful. Congratulations on your little ninja :)

  8. The nursery is so sweet, you have done an amazing job. It will be a perfect place to sit and rock your little one and his little bum. :)

  9. I love your light and the whole nursery is just darling! Stop over and see what I blogged about today - a little coincidence!

    1. I SO wanted that light!! So jealous. :) It looks great in your laundry room. :)

  10. Oh my gosh, are those diapers just the cutest thing ever??? I love them too because they contain the poop really well. Gotta love Pampers. The light turned out great! We just installed our new kitchen light over the weekend, which I will be sharing this week too. I might have to go to Lowe's and pick up a similar light. Right now I just have two exposed bulbs on the ceiling. lol

  11. hi! came across your blog through pinterest - just wanted to let you know that i think your nursery is so super cute! and that light fixture is awesome! whenever i see a tiny diaper i can't help but say 'awww!' too bad they don't stay cute for long ;)

  12. What a beautiful nursery. Love the new light. Great choice! Perfect for your little bum! ;)

  13. Such an adorable room and blog. The new light looks great, and I'm also excited about the light that you didn't chose - we are working on a bath remodel, and that type light is one of my choices so why not find it at a better price. My husband keep naying all my light choices - there is one other I'd really like, and that one which are up next for approval. I think he is to the point where he isn't going to receive a vote :) Have a great day!

  14. I love the last shot, the one with the diaper and the toy doll. Thanks.
