There is a giveaway sweeping across the DIY blogosphere. The Barn Electric Light Giveaway to be exact. I read about it on a few blogs, and most recently from Whitney at Drab to Fab Design. This little contest gives us bloggers the opportunity to win some free lighting. I love free! I’m in!
So, without further ado… here is what I would do with $1,000 at Barn Electric Light…
Some of the lighting that is in our home is original to the house. Loud brass that is screaming for attention. Other lighting needs to be replaced as a result of the previous owners. They painted the outdoor lights a bright copper patina green. Let’s start there….
Oh wait… have I ever mentioned that we have a porch off the den? Well, now I have. Welcome to our porch…. with the green lights. [I will give you a tour another day, promise!]
Upon closer inspection, we can see that they are clearly painted and are actually installed upside-down! What?!
Let’s remedy this situation with this Barn Light 6″ Warehouse Sconce. I love the finish on these little guys. Plus… they are on sale for $65 each! Woot!
The fan in our porch was also subject to a dark green paint.
Let’s brighten it up with this Edgewood Deluxe Ceiling Fan.
Next, let’s take a look at our kitchen pendents. Now… really they aren’t that bad, but they aren’t our style. The lights are on in this picture, but they are dark brown, green, and blue blown glass, which makes them feel so heavy. This kitchen needs something a bit lighter.
Enter Crystalline 1-Light Pendant. How pretty!
Last, but certainly not least is the living room. There is a hunk of brass hanging from the ceiling as our ceiling fan.
This Lapa Ceiling Fan is uber mod/chic and brushed nickel, which wouldn’t draw your eye up when you enter the room. *Sigh*
The foyer light in the living rooms is also in need of some help. The current light is so dull… and I mean that literally. There is not a lot of light coming from it. We need something a bit brighter and less brass.
This little Raindrop 8-Light Chandelier looks like it will do the trick!
Of course, I could go on and on. Our exterior lights were also painted a copper color and could be replaced. The flush mount lights in the halls need some life. So… here’s to hope that we win this little giveaway!
What do you all think? Any lights from Barn Light Electric catch your eye?
