Farmhouse Inspired Lighting


Hello everyone!

You may recall, in a previous post, that I said I ordered a new light fixture for my kitchen.  Well, it arrived today and my husband graciously hung it for me.  Yay! 

Here it is..............


I like how it flows with the rest of the decor.   The black and white color is bold  and really enhances the color scheme and  farmhouse feel I'm trying to capture.


It's also painted with chalkboard paint, so if I ever get creative and want to write anything on it, I can.  Not quite sure if I'll do that.  I don't want it to look strange.  ha!  But, don't be surprised if I post something written on it.  You just never know.  Ha!


The light came from Wuslu. 

The kitchen light is not the only one my husband hung for me.  He also hung this one in my powder room.


This is actually an outdoor light!  My sister came up with this great idea and suggested it to me.  Thank you Kim!!! Not only does it enhance the farmhouse feel of this bathroom, but it was VERY inexpensive!  I got this at Lowe's for only $25.00.  Now, I just need to replace the brass faucet in here and this room will be done.


I'm considering a faucet that looks like this.

This one is from Overstock.com.  I like the porcelain cross handle with it too.  My sister picked this one out.   She's great with suggestions for my bathroom.  She has alot of experience with doing her own, so I trust her advice.

Well, hope you liked my new lights!  I can't wait to see my kitchen light lit up at night. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I love that photo of your bathroom, Kelly. Both light look great. Bringing the outdoor light in was a great idea. Sis rocks!

Bliss said...

I suppose you could chalk on your light "turn me off" but be careful because someone else might come along and write turn me on!

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Love what you have going on here, great farmhouse look in your kitchen and breakfast area. very cool! thanks so much for linking up to VIF!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great lights, Kelly! Oh, you have to write on it! Things like "sitting down to a 'light' meal" or "you light up my life". : ) That new faucet would look great in your bathroom. I like that old-fashioned look and had a similar one in our powder room in my old house.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Kelly I love them both and you definitely have the farmhouse feel going on!

Andrea said...

great lights, and I love that faucet you are thinking about!

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

What a great look you have in your dining area.

Anita said...

Kelly, love your light fixtures!! Oddly enough, I have a very similar antique fixture on the outside of my great grandmother's little guest house like your new bathroom one! This one was actually handcrafted my dad told me yesterday as I was trying to figure out how to use it myself.

Your new dining light is awesome! I have two of the ones you have in your bathroom. When we bought this house, they were hanging in the walls in the back stairway!

Debbiedoo's said...

You got the look you were going for Kelly. Looks awesome!

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Love the lights, Kelly! I would totally write on the kitchen one... something like, "no dessert unless you eat ALL your dinner." When my kids ask me 10 times if they've eaten enough, I could just point up :)

I love the new light fixture Kelly. It is absolutely perfect for your kitchen.

J's bathroom has outdoor lights. I was going to change them as I thought the room wasn't brightened enough, but after it was painted last month, the lighter walls reflect the light beautifully. I was happy about that as the outdoor lights are just right for the room as is yours.

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Hi Kelly, just love how you do the mix in your decor. You have such great ideas and transfer them so well into your home. I'm going to feature this post on VIF Thursday, thanks so much for sharing all your inspiration! xoxo

Pamela said...

Love your farmhouse lighting! I am going to have to run to Lowes tomorrow and see if I can find the one in your bathroom! It is perfect for our half bath that I am trying to redo!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Kelly, Both lights are fabulous and fit in perfectly with your lovely home. Hugs, Sherry

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Don't know which light I like better. They're both adorable and work very well with your farmhouse theme. Great job!

Daffodil Hill said...

Everything looks lovely. I love the new light fixtures. Couldn't help but notice the black door in the background. Looks great.

Hi Kelly! Just stopping over from Kim's blog to say hi and tell you how much I love your new lighting choices!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I love your dining area with the black painted doors and the light fixture looks wonderful!

I've got the same aluminum fixture picked out at Lowe's for an industrial look in a semi-finished basement bathroom. AND we installed that same faucet in our pedestal sink in the main bath. I'm very happy with it.

Erin {Lavender and Lemon Drops} said...

I LOVE your new lights! I think I have a slight obsession with lighting ;) You have a beautiful dining area!

Beth said...

I love your style! I follow Kim and just found out about you! I will be back!

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

You have made great choices with both light fixtures and it shows how the smallest updates can make such a big difference. I love the pop of pink flowers in the powder room.

TracyMB @ Crows Feet Chic said...

Gorgeous fixtures and Get Well Soon! (sent by Bliss)! :)

Janel from NellieBellie said...

You must leave a message for Bliss on your light. Wouldn't that be just too funny!! Came over from Bliss' blog...can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve!! Get feeling better!

Kathryn J Cain said...

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Such a pretty light...
in "LIGHT" of your present illness... you could write
"Wash you hands" OR
"Say No To Germs" OR
"Does this look infected to you?"

Sorry to hear your under the weather, get well...
