Buy Buy BUY

Home renovations is a combination of all my favorite things: new stuff, shopping, decorating, and breaking things. Glorious! Anyway... I am putting up two new lights in our dining/living area, instead of the recessed lights we have now. I have spent countless agonizing hours deciding which light to put where, how to set up the space and what will go where. This is what I have come up with:

This part of the space will become our "dining room". I have drawn where the light will go (we are having it moved over and it will not swag) and also added a link to picture of the light we are getting. I give myself and "A" for effort with this drawing, although it looks like a gross spider:

This is the light we hope to put there (I could not paste a picture for some reason):

Now, for the other half of the room. This is going to be the "living room" and I will put this light:

Here (this one I get an B for effort and an F for beauty):

The bad news is that both of these lights will be on the same switch unless we really get crazy and re-wire one of them. Perhaps this is an option. Perhaps not. We shall see. Until then I will wait for my lights to come in and clutter up my house. Yippee!
