Welcome back to week 4 of the One Room Challenge! PSA: WE HAVE LIGHT!!
I think this week might be more exciting than last because I was itching to get rid of that awful light that had cobwebs on it, that was one of the things on my list that was first to go when we bought the house. In my opinion lighting can make or break a space. If you have a great looking space but unproportial light, not enough light, or outdated lighting it can really affect how a space looks overall even if everything else is on point! In our first house I changed out most of our lighting but didn’t make it to all the boob lights, I mean why builders, why??
Many people think great lighting is expensive, while it definitely can be there are so many sources for inexpensive yet still great options for lights. A couple of my favorite places for lights are CB2, West Elm, and Wayfair. If you ever find a light anywhere try to get the name and do a quick google search, so many places offer the same lights for different prices! We purchased this light from West Elm and I looooove it!
Love the simplicity yet modern touch it’s bringing to our dining room.
I opted for the opaque bulbs versus clear to give it a different look. Currently I’m voting it should be lowered and hubs says he likes the height…we’ll see in week 6 who wins out! I can’t wait to show you more close ups of this space once it’s all complete.
Minus a dirty back door and an unstyled table (but where’s the fun in the final reveal if it’s shown perfectly now?) we are well on our way to a new, beautiful dining space! Next week I’ll be getting to more detail and styling of the dining room before we wrap up fo week 6 in two weeks. It’s crazy when you’re doing a project like this how quickly 6 weeks can fly by! Don’t forget to head over to Calling it Home to see all the other guest participants and their amazing projects they are working hard on.
In case you’re just now tuning in you can see the first three weeks below:
