I am proud, I'll admit it. I walk up that staircase and beam (inside) at the lovely I created. And one day something happened. It felt darker somehow. I thought "Oh a bulb is out..." and then I looked up.
I felt a lump in my throat, it's hard to swallow
No, it's not an orb in my photo, that grayish spot is the stairway light fixture. Jaw on the floor... yeah a bulb was out, but (please don't judge) look at that ceiling fixture!!! I think I've spent the last 7 years reproducing and raising 5 kids and never had a sec to look anywhere but down!
So after an entire a.m. of googling for a cheap solution, I came up with a couple of contenders. I found two different affordable (key word) lantern style fixtures from Overstock.
Rustic like the steps, affordable, available. OK. then I turned around at the top of the steps and looked up at the ceiling. We've got three, yes three, of those beauties in the upstairs hallway. Here's 2 of 'em.
Now your talking about 4 total light fixtures. There goes the budget, so I've just put this replacement on the back burner.
I guess one at thing at a time. I'm going to "Bloom Where I'm Planted" in the stairway first, because that's what visitors see!!!!
Any suggestion? Please leave some comments, I need a solution!
