Vintage Style Kitchen Lighting Update! Buh Bye Boob light!




Hello my Beauties! I am so excited to bring you today's makeover.
A couple weeks ago we finally got around to replacing our kitchen lighting.

One of the lights I desperately wanted to replace was the 
 BOOB light in our kitchen..
admit it....It looks like a BOOB!! 
Why oh WHY did I not notice this years ago when I bought it.
:)


I also wanted to replace this old chandelier.
This was one of my very first blog posts.
It was an old brass chandelier that I bought at a thrift shop for a couple 
bucks, painted and hung up.
You can see that post HERE
Seriously...the post is so old I forgot what I kitchen even looked like back then.
One of the issues we had finding a different light for above our cooking area was that
we have an OLD house..Meaning we do not have Big Vaulted Ceilings or anything
where you can hang a big fancy pendant light because honestly it would get hit with a pan or something.
So we had to replace it with something Flush mount...
Not a lot of choices out there for this sort of light...
Or so I thought.

I was thinking..how cool would this be,
but alas...its not flush mount ...
Then I start reading the description...


You can remove the center post....and have it be
semi-flush mount....
DO YOU HEAR ANGELS...?
I did..😇
I finally could have an awesome NON BOOB light in my kitchen.
and the even better part is they make a coordinating chandelier!
So I could have matching vintage lighting in my kitchen
than I didn't have to spray paint to match LOL!
so now my kitchen could have 2 Kichler 

I love the vintage touch that it added to our kitchen.
The vintage industrial design is punctuated with Clear Seedy Glass shades, reminiscent of glass jars that were a staple of 19th century American life.
We added the Edison style bulbs to add to the vintage style.
We couldn't be happier.

They add such character to our kitchen.
Is it weird to love a light...????
If its wrong...I don't wanna be right!


I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover.
I joked that my kitchen wouldn't stay that clean 
past 3pm and I was right.
The kids came home and dropped their books on the table and started with homework
and it was back to that LIVED in LOOK that I just love~!
