Light Up the Entry

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I don’t know if you have noticed, but we have been a little bit absent lately. I have been busy getting projects done in the house and on the front porch and that doesn’t leave me as much time to write any posts. I have also had to work a few extra hours and then I am usually so tired, I can’t even think about writing something up!

I have been working on the entry and front porch these past couple of weeks. My husband took out the closet in the front entry and it has been dry-walled, primered and painted. I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with the cement floor. I am thinking about painting it and adding stencil to it, so wish me luck on that idea! I have painted both sides of the front door and fixed up the front porch a bit. Now I am on to lighting! This is kind of difficult for me…there are so many choices! My home has a bit of coastal influence, so I am trying to stay with that idea. I would love to have some kind of chandelier in the entry, but unfortunately, we only have 8 foot ceiling and the front door opens right under the light, so I can’t have anything too long. So I have been looking for flush lighting for the entry and a new outdoor light for the front porch. I thought I would share a few of my ideas with you!

These are all from Amazon. I could look for hours at all the different choices, but here is what I have narrowed it down to.

1. Trans Globe Lighting 5128 ROB 1-Light Flush Mount

2.Elegant Designs FM1000-CHR Ellipse Crystal 2 Light Ceiling Flush Mount, Chrome

3.Design House 519876 Kimball 1 Light Semi Flush Mount Ceiling Light, Galvanized Steel Finish

4.Capital Lighting 3537PN-134 1 Light Ceiling Fixture in Polished Nickel Finish w/Clear Glass

This next set is from hayneedle.com. They carry so much more than lighting and have such great products. Here are a few picks:

1. Eglo USA Thebe 91166A Flush Mount Light

2.Golden Lighting Duncan 3602-14 Flush Mount Light

3. Sea Gull Lighting Bretton 7647EN Flush Mount Light

4.Z-Lite Chelsey 314F Flush Mount Light

Here are a few of the outdoor porch light I choose.

  1. Maxim Wharf Outdoor Wall Light – 9.5H in.

2. Trans Globe Lighting 4632 BN 14-1/2-Inch 1-Light Outdoor Down Wall Lantern, Brushed Nickel

3.Kichler Lighting 9777WH 3 Light Chesapeake Outdoor Sconce, White by Kichler

4. Kichler Seaside 9Outdoor Wall Lantern

Well, what do you think? Are there any you would choose or think would look good? Let me know! Hope you all have a great week!

The Prettiest Things to Hang Over Your Head

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! My husband went to the church carnival, but I stayed home to help keep the dogs from going to crazy everytime the doorbell rang. We also celebrated Munchkins first birthday yesterday! We had doggy cake and presents and everything!! Ha! It’s so funny to see their expression. She looked at us like we were crazy. I guess we are!

I will start at the beginning, the entryway. I have never had an entryway before, so I am looking forward to decorating it and welcoming people into my home. I thought this chandelier would be great. Isn’t it beautiful?  Kind of beachy and kind of farmhouse. Perfect!

Next we have the kitchen area. I will be having a bar for the first time too and this light would look great hanging above it. I like the way it curves around the top.

I really wanted a statement piece for the kitchen dining area.  Isn’t this amazing! I love the shape and how it would give plenty of light to the table. I think this light is incredible!

The last one today is for the family room. I wouldn’t be able to have it this low, but I love how simple, but yet a little different, it is. I love drum shades and this one  is great.
