New family room light

Hi friends,

Hope you all had an amazing weekend. As we get further into the spring, the weekends get better and better. Today we visited with friends in the backyard and the boys went for a bike ride. The best of days.

As you probably guessed from the title of this post, we bit the bullet and bought a new light for the family room. This is the light that came with the house:



And this is what we replaced it with:


We got Victorian style bulbs that have large filaments like these:


It's hard to see from the photos but they really give the pendant an interesting look. The light is a bit orange but it's a warm light rather than a cool artificial light

As a side note, I refuse to buy halogen bulbs as they burn out faster than they are supposed to and contain mercury. My kids broke one at one point and it was super worrisome for me even if it was just a small amount.

Here are a few pics of the family room with the new light:
 



Still more to go on this room (new sectional, new paint, painting the inside of the shelves white, and getting a grown up rug) but we are making progress.

I leave you today with this amusing item:


Thanks for stopping by!
