I'm sure you have seen these lights sold in hardware stores before. Or, maybe you have even used them yourself in the garage or in a work shop.
They are inexpensive and meant to be used as task lighting.
However, I noticed that stores often use them on bookshelves to highlight their wares for sale. And......I think they look a bit industrial.
I decided to use them in my kitchen.
At first, I used them to highlight my cabinets and for task lighting.
But later, I thought they would be pretty as accent lighting at night as well.
I just attached them to the curtain rod and hid the cord behind the drapes. They are plugged into a switch box that I can turn on with my foot on the floor.
I love the beam of light they put out.
It almost feels like a gallery in here with the lights streaming down on the walls.
It has completely changed the look of my kitchen at night!
So, now, I not only have task lighting in the cooking area, but accent lighting in the eating area. The industrial look of these fits perfectly with the farmhouse feel of my kitchen too. They're not too fancy and certainly not too expensive!
I guess if I was Candice Olsen from HG TV, I would've had my electrician install "pot lights" in the ceiling. But hey, that is not in the budget, so my little clamp lights will just have to do. Somehow, I don't feel like I'm making a sacrifice though.
Thanks for stopping by!
