David and I have been loving our dining room makeover for the last few months. BUT (there's always a but!) something wasn't sitting just right. Get it? But? Sitting right? Yes, I'm a dork. And that something was the lighting fixture over the table.
While I absolutely love the Home Depot lighting fixture that we scored on the cheap, it just wasn't working. For the last few months, I've been keeping an eye out on a good replacement, so when I was visiting my friend Katelyn last month and saw her amazing CB2 pendant, I knew I'd found "the one." Once I spied it on sale for $35, I used a $25 Crate & Barrel gift card and... voila! A $10 fixture. Can't beat that!
David had to rig the pendant light to hang from the ceiling by using a mini pendant lighting kit from Home Depot. It was only $15, which brought the grand total of our new pendant light to $25.
I'm absolutely in love! I think this pendant is a much better fit than the previous fixture. It's lighter and brighter and a whole lot more simple than the heavy Home Depot fixture. And it leaves plenty of viewing space for my eye candy sunburst mirror on the wall. And, once we put our Home Depot fixture on Craigslist, we'll actually be in the black. Score!
