Lighting for $300 or Less: Chandeliers, Flushmounts and Sconces
There are two things I’ve wanted to tear my hair out over with the renovation of the 70’s Landing Pad – the master bathroom renovation and lighting. Oh wait, I forgot about wallpaper removal. Make that three things. And then there was the paint color selections. Hell, let’s just go on and admit that this whole reno is going to send me to the looney bin sooner than I expected.
Anyway, this post is supposed to be about lighting. To date, I have bought one single light fixture for the 70’s Landing Pad – a lucite chandelier (just like this one) from a local antique store. You guys aided in that purchase by telling me to go ahead and just buy it when we were chatting about the kitchen plans. When I went to go buy it, it was marked down and I got an extra 10% off, so it ended up being $150. Thanks for enabling me, y’all. I am madly in love with it, but can’t decide the best place to put it. Entry? Dining Room? Kitchen?
And then I started looking for lighting for the rest of the house.
And that’s when I lost my shit and preceded to find the nearest corner to go into the fetal position and cry.

How to Make a Lampshade & Finial (Giddy up, Cowgirl)
I’m usually really good at saying no to impulse buys.
Well, except for when something is on clearance. If its on clearance and I love it, but have absolutely no need for it, its definitely coming home with me.
I have a fabric hoarding problem as well.
Its all just so pretty and colorful and pattern-ful. (That’s totally a word.)
And so when I saw this cowgirl fabric this past spring, I had to have it.
I also had no use for it whatsoever.
Until I found this gold lamp on clearance at Target.
And I didn’t have a use for it either.
But I bought it anyway.
And then I needed a shade.
And then Kiri from i like that lamp* sent me a lampshade kit.
And then I thought of the cowgirl fabric.
And then a cowgirl lampshade was born.
And then all was right in the world.
