Given that I love vintage dresses...well, I guess you can see why I like this picture!

I love this!  So simple....and I have several cool umbrellas.

Another wonderful idea.  I have a dish and bowl obsession and this would be a great way to use them so everyone could see them!

Such great whimsy!

My Mother has tons of these doilies...she could be making some wonderful lighting!

I have some hanging mason jar lights (thank you LaurieAnna)....but some wall sconces would be awesome on either side of my guest room bed!

I did not realize that when you get new carpet and flooring you start to examine EVERYTHING that looks dated in your house.  Lighting can really change the look or a room quickly (good or bad).  My Mother and Father moved from an older house into a newer one and she has been struggling with her shabby stuff in the newer house.  We have started replacing light fixtures and chandeliers and it has made a world of difference in the look and feel of each room.  The ceiling fans in my upstairs game room were dated and white, so I recently bought some galvanized industrial fans and it really created a look in the room that I love!  I also replaced a can light in my bathroom with a small chandelier and it made a huge impact!  Look at all your lighting and have some fun.  It really will make a BIG difference!  Oh, and these pictures are from Pinterest by the way! 


  1. interesting post. Now you can use this importers directory india to promote lighting products import & export business.

  2. Hi Denis, what unique inspiration pictures, love them all. I'm in the process of changing all of our dated light fixtures and adding mostly antique chandeliers. I did purchase a few new light fixtures to hang over my island from Laurie Anna's, (AND I LOVE THEM.) I will be mixing it up a bit and adding an antique chandelier over the kitchen table. I love mixing different things together. Hope we get to see pictures of your updates soon!
