I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:
My family knows that I am addicted to light fixtures. If you go to Home Depot you will probably find me there admiring all of the lights!If you shop around on line as well there are some very affordable light fixtures that can update any room you like. No need to spend a fortune on lights now!!!I love the new drum shades that are so popular. I especially like the fabric shades that you can see through like my master bedroom bedside tables have (I got those @ Walmart in clearance for $20 ea.-see below).
A couple weeks ago I was inspired by Kristel over at “The Velvet Door“. We had both received the Spotlight award up on my side bar there! She posted about this light and I just loved the look!
So…I started my search for an affordable light like hers, but with fabric to match.I was pleasantly shocked to find this one for $129 at Over Stock.com (it’s now $103)
I think that is a great price.sooo…This fan came with the house, and is fine. I think I have used the fan part twice. My parents on the other hand could really use a fan in their family room…so…
It won’t be wasted!
The new light ended up being my Mother’s Day gift!My husband is fantastic at putting light fixtures up for me. I know it’s an awful job, but he never complains.(well, just a little)
We decided to do drape the chain since it was so close to the bed. I love the way it hangs over the center of the rug now and is lower.My husband just fits under the glass jewels.I should also mention the light came with beautiful jewels. They are not plastic, but glass.
Very romantic and very pretty!
