Barn Light Electric

Remember how I told you that the former owner of our house must have LOVED boob lights? They are everywhere, hallways, kitchen, bathrooms… everywhere. So far we’ve removed 3 and have about 3 to go. Beyond those, I’m not a big fan of any of the lights we had in our house. Basically all lighting fixtures will need to be changed out at some point.
So, I’m entering a contest to try to win a $1000 gift certificate to Barn Light Electric and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to get rid of some of them.
Here’s what I’d buy if I won:

I think these would be kind of amazing next to our bed instead of our lamps. I’d love to have sconces instead of lamps because I have very narrow bedside table and my lamp takes up about half of it.
 Once we convert our living room into the dining room, we’re going to need to add an overhead light in that room. This could be kind of amazing:

or one of these:

Finally, I definitely need to replace the lanterns on our porch with something like this:
What would you get if you won?

  1. Oh my! I love your first two choices soooo much! (sigh) I want new lights (pouting like a 2 yr old)

  2. Oooooh I like your choices and second all of them! I've gotta go enter this - my house has the lamest light ever!! Thanks for sharing the contest and good luck!!!!!

  3. The first image would make a great sconce for reading in the bedroom. We replaced all of our outside lights in one of the homes we lived in with a much larger fixture. It was a crackled glass lantern and when the outside lights were on these lights gave the most gorgeous lighting. Most outside lights are rarely large enough to give your house the presence that it needs when you are looking from the street. I noticed this once while driving through our subdivision. All of the outside lights were much to small to accommodate the size of the homes and ours was no exception. It made a world of difference!

    Wishing you good luck in the contest!

  4. dude, I'm super curious about what a boob light is, LOL

Could it be only me or does it look like some of the comments look like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list of all of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
