I like my kitchen.
It’s a good size considering how small my house is; it’s open; the cabinets are practically new.
But the lighting leaves much to be desired. The fixtures themselves are nice, but they don’t give nearly as much light as I would like.
I haven’t quite committed to what I want to do to remedy the lack-of-light dilemma, but in the meantime I got this:
I know, it’s brass… gross. But it was FREE! And it adds so much more light in my kitchen! I need to get a hook thing to swing it to a more central location (probably over where my someday-island will be).
I took off the rings on the glass shades in an attempt to reduce the amount of brass-ness and it helped.
The next step is… SPRAY PAINT! (Surprised? Didn’t think so!)
Before I get to that step I have to decide what color I want to go with… a clean white? a darker bronzey to match my cabinet pull knobs? or maybe something really different and fun like the chandelier before and after featured on Design*Sponge? (probably not purple/plum, but maybe a yellow or blue?)
