When we remodeled last year, we bought some cheap, temporary lights for the living room & family room. Temporary until I could find some vintage fixtures to replace these boring, big box store fixtures. Yuck.
The time has come: $25 Art Deco light for the living room courtesy Craigslist
$15 second hand store glass shade...Mark put this light together out of a stash of pieces I've been hoarding for just such a reason
We brought this light with us when we moved from our old house...I just couldn't leave it behind! I found this at a second hand store, complete with hand blown glass shade, for $15
And this little nautical number...$8 at the Habitat for Humanity resale shop...a fresh coat of white paint...perfect for the (beachy) guest bath
