We bought a fixer - Lighting update

Hi there. How are you?

We are starting to see the light at the end of the remodel tunnel.
Things are truly starting to come together. 
Today, I'll give you a little glimpse into our new lighting. 

Pre-renovation, our fixer was filled with all sorts of lighting "treasures" like this......

I actually kind of like this one (above), but it doesn't go with our current aesthetic.

This is just a small sampling of the fixtures that once lived in our house. 
I  wish I would have documented them a little better prior to demo.

I'm kicking myself for not taking a better picture of the sconces that you can barely see here.
We did a little HGTV/DIY action on them.

We spray painted them Swedish blue, added a more modern looking "shade" and reinstalled them so the bulb was pointing up. Cool huh?

Prior to renovation, there were many dark corners in our house.
(Matt likened it to cave.)
We've added a lot of track lighting and pot lights to brighten things up.
This particular set of light now hang in our entry way.
(Wait till you see full transformation in the entry!)

My favorite new fixture is in our dining room.
We came across the "Huck Duck" (now called the Manhattan Project) on Pinterest.

This string of sockets is made right here in the USA.
Matt installed a galvanized pipe and artfully wrapped the twisted fabric cord around it.
He finished it off with 2 different styles of old school Edison bulbs.
We love its industrial vibe!

I leave you with a little glimpse of things to come.
What do you think?

I'm off to finish up painting at the house! Yes!
Ta-ta for now.
