A pretty and delicate lace-like pendant chandelier made for less than $35 using three metal candle holders and a triple pendent cord set from Ikea.
Before Sophie came along Oliver and Anna shared the jack-and-jill bathroom. It was a pale green bathroom (not really sure what I was thinking there), something that could be shared by a boy and a girl without a giant fight. But then Sophie came along, Oliver got the guest room and bathroom, and I got to go to town making the prettiest, girliest, bathroom of my dreams. I’m going to dedicate a post to it one day.
The one thing that I always get hung up on is lighting though. I KNOW the right light can completely make the space, and the wrong light (like the ones the builder put in), can ruin everything else you’ve done. The problem is that lighting is just so damn expensive. Seriously – it’s a little bit of metal and/or glass and some wire, why the hell does it cost so much….
