Literally Matt lit up our house this weekend, with lights. For a while now I’ve wanted to replace the lighting through out the house. Most of our fixtures were these yucky old gold fixtures. I knew it wouldn’t take a lot to replace them so once we had more cash back from AMEX Matt ordered our gift cards to Lowes.
On Saturday we went and picked out our new lights. We got new outside lights, lights for the foyer, hallway lights and a fan for the guest bedroom. Oh and let’s not forget the super cute rug I found. Score! I found 3 I liked and then showed them to Matt. Much to my surprise he actually liked (or decided to tolerate my fave ;)) and we added that to our cart full.
Later that night we managed to hang the foyer light.
As you can see the one down the hallway mirrors the hanging light. Well at least as much as it could.
This is at the top of the stairs on the main floor. The ones in the upstairs hallway are similar but not quite as large.
The fan in the guest room.
Our new outdoor lights. A HUGE improvement over the old, bug-filled ones.
Our new rug. Julio loves it, of course. I really liked the colors of this one. You can’t really tell from the pic but it’s got blue and green, brown, beige and tan. It matches the color scheme I am trying to stick with. I thought Matt would be like “it’s too florally” but he didn’t. And he keeps saying he likes it. YAY!
Needless to say our weekend was pretty busy. We sent all of Sunday hanging the new lights. And we had to make another Lowe’s trip because he forgot we had 2 lights upstairs and I forgot about the one at the top of the stairs, so we had the same count and were both WRONG! HA!
