severe eye sore to sweet silver circles

i’m not sure if you ever noticed this hideous track lighting in the kitchen…

awful. AW. FUL. one of the first things i mentally replaced when we moved in. it took me forever to actually do something about it because i was so indecisive about what pendants to replace it with. i finally ordered these silver circles pendants for just $99 each from shades of light (plus 10% off using the yhl discount code). they were back-ordered, so it was months before they were finally on our doorstep. happily, they came just in time to install before the birthday party.
oh and dane was adorable with the packaging. he was obsessed with the plastic stuff.

so our electrician came by and hung the two new pendants in place of the terrible track. it required two new holes in order to get them centered over the peninsula.

they are actually much bigger than i envisioned, but we absolutely love them.. maybe my favorite upgrade in this house to date.

check out the cool shadows they throw at night..

so much better. i’m glad we took our time with this… the right lighting can make a world of difference.
