I have spent the majority of the week searching for the remaining light fixtures that we need. I’ve been looking for an over the mirror light and pendant for the guest bathroom, pendants for over the kitchen counter and exterior lights.
I’m really trying to be frugal at this point so I went to just about every vintage and thrift shop in town. Unfortunately all I came up with was a 60’s lucite pendant that was going for $275. I got her down to $225 but she wouldn’t budge from there. Even on Valentine’s Day! I think it might be too Hollywood anyways.
So after scouring the internet I think I’ve found at least the pendant for the guest bathroom. I found this on Overstock for $115.99.
Check out it’s twin priced at $309.99.
I love lighting that makes a statement but the bathroom is 5′ x 7′ and I’m not looking to spend a fortune. I think this fixture says clean & stylish at the right price. What do you think?
I love this fixture from Quoizel for over the mirror.
Back to the kitchen. Fabio hasn’t picked out any of the lighting so when he said he really liked a pendant from Home Depot that cost $40 (yes people, I said $40) I said sure that’ll work. Unfortunately the display model is totally deceiving. The finish on the display is brushed nickel but all they have for sale is antique brass which looks gold. That’s why it’s $40 and that’s why it’s not going in the kitchen.
Through all this searching I discovered a helpful little hint. Always search ebay for your item and contact the seller even if it’s a store front. Then try to negotiate the price and shipping. Worked for me! 🙂
