Our bathroom renovation started on Monday and it now looks like this:

Who wants to call first dibs on the shower now? Be my guest.

The picture looks as old as the tile but believe me when I tell you it was taken this morning.

Here’s what our bathroom used to look like:

Goodbye minty green tile. I’m sure you were way cool in your heyday.

If all goes according to plan, I should be able to share After pictures in about four weeks.  While we patiently wait for the hot mess to be completed, I’ll share some pendant options I’m thinking about using in the space.  The bathroom isn’t huge so I don’t want to pick something that completely overpowers the room.  The tile going in is white and the paint color will be soothing, so I also want the light fixture to be the key piece that makes people go, “ooooh, ahhhhh.”

I can already picture this one from here centered right dab in the middle of the bathroom.

Ooh, I can picture this one too. So dainty, antique looking and utterly refined. But best of all, inexpensive.

The simplicity of this West Elm one also draws in my attention.

Chandelier without all the drama. I like.

That’s it, I think I’m going with this one.

Perfect for when I want people to say, “What The F*ck”, and completely discredit any stile people may have thought I had.

This one from Urban Electro is waaaay more than I’m willing to spend, but in an ideal world I’d have it installed as soon as all the other rubbish was out the door.

Ugh, I can’t afford this one either. Why am I torturing myself by searching for lighting I can’t buy, you ask? I don’t know, I kinda like it.

I can’t decide. Help! What do you think? Which one would you pick? If your choice is the butterfly one, you need not comment and perhaps you shouldn’t be reading this blog. : )

Until Tomorrow,

No. 5

available here

I went to Target yesterday and stumbled upon the above glass jar lamp. I’ve been seeing such lamps pop up everywhere but wasn’t ever really drawn to them until I saw this one. The No. 5 printed on the front made this one stand out from the rest. I turned to my right and turned to my left but there was no one there to take in the joy of finding such a stellar item. I quickly thought of who I may be able to persuade into making this purchase but decided I could pair it with other items to make it more convincing. I like the idea of using it in an industrial, rustic, cottage living room. Take a look at some items I think will complement this fun lamp.

I finally received my June issue of House Beautiful and guess what was on the cover?

Yup, a glass jar base lamp.
