We do the best with what we have, right? I would love another kitchen, but I've got to make do with the one I have. And that's exactly what I did.
We have one central ceiling light and when sitting with your back to the light, your body would cast shadows on the table. Not cool when the kids need to do their homework and straining their eyes to see it.
I decided I wanted lighting over the kitchen table, but didn't want recessed or track lighting. To me that just seemed like harsh lighting for the space, plus I had my eye on some pretty awesome pendants.
Yup, these were the winners.
I love Edison light fixtures, they were a great price and free shipping was included. And although our main light in the kitchen is white, I have black accents with the kitchen chairs, curtain rods, some appliances, wine rack, etc . . . so I wasn't too afraid of adding "non-matching" lights.
Here they are in their new home (Thanks Scott!).
They don't bother me one bit that they're not matchy-matchy white.
No more shadows for us.
I love them, and surprisingly, the kids don't bat them around like a playground tether ball. ;)
Thanks for reading,
