Happy happy happy 2013! What an exciting and exhausting year 2012 was. We are defiantly very happy to welcome 2013, and we have a few surprises up our sleeves besides a new baby boy in just a few weeks. Eek! Hello 37 weeks today! Enough baby gab, check out what we actually got done whilst preggo in the middle of the holiday chaos!
It’s amazing what a single light can do for a room. We were drooling over these guys below for a while and finally pulled the trigger as the holidays approached to get the guest/baby bathroom in order before guests arrived. Picking a color was super hard, but we landed on cobalt blue. If it were a different house – I would totally go minty.
Part of our plan worked. We got the light, but didn’t hang it up in time for guests. Eeek! Lucky for us, Joey’s family is a bunch of can-doers, and they helped us get the bathroom lit in a snap. We went from this old dingy thing…
To a group of Katsaros men taking the ick away…Thanks Uncle Mark and George!
…and hanging up this bad boy. Isn’t he handsome? He was only $179 from Barn Light Electric, which is pretty shocking because it’s a really nice light and well made enough for a super simple and non flimsy installment. Three men were not necessary, but it was super heart warming to watch. Yes, I am pregnant and sappy, bear with me.
We could have gone minty, but all that 50’s tile chaos is going white sooner or later. This light is actually the catalyst of a slew of bathroom changes to come.
The vanity lights are also Barn Light Electric, and we are thinking of doing that with the same cobalt blue.
I can’t wait to get my hands on an Edison bulb and finish of the look! So far, we are in love with him and are inspired to start work on this very ignored room. This is the first time I think we even shared a photo! Man, we need to paint that ceiling! Look at that nasty ring the old light left behind. I bet that thing is 100 years old.
So, what do you guys think of the inspiration? Any ideas you want to throw at us?
