cheap lighting that isn’t ugly

 #operationbachelorpad is coming along slowly but surely.  Time to get it wrapped up.  Three of these babies were ordered to go over the kitchen island.

I love them, but I’m not loving Lamps Plus, where they came from.  Two out of the three have been delivered shattered, TWICE.  Bachelor is over it, and I don’t blame him, but he is anxious and wants pendants installed this weekend.  So whats a gal to do?  Head to the Depot.  Home Depot.  I tell ya what, they have a decent and affordable, in-stock inventory.  Game on!  

Now three of these are going over the kitchen island.

Like em?  I do too!  And we are saving a few hundred big ones. Woo Hoo!

And guess what?  During my shopping adventures I found all kinds of pretties over there.  Wanna see some of my top picks…?

Elegant chandeliers, both under $300, both great picks for a dining area.

For an industrial feel, these are nice pendants for around $60.

I really like the green, but they are so affordable you could spray paint them in any fun color you like.

How cute is this lil flush mount?hd light 6

I bet that it would cast pretty shadows on the walls.

I can’t resist a cute round sparkler.
