Last week, I went shopping with my husband for some affordable lights for our house.
Shopping with my husband.
Four words that should never be uttered together in the same sentence. 🙂
I had a pretty good idea of the style of lights I wanted, so I thought we’d be in and out of the stores fairly quickly.
Ha! What a joke!
We looked at dozens of lights, disputed the merits of all of them, and we argued about what kind of light bulbs to put in them.
Seriously … who argues about light bulbs?
It was like the time we argued over a rusty dust pan (and if you recall, I won that argument). 🙂
First I’ll show you the lights we want to replace, then I’ll show you some of the lights I’m considering.
We’re working on a pretty tight budget, so we only focused on affordable farmhouse lights both in stores and online.
We’ve had this repurposed milk can strainer light in our kitchen since we remodeled the room, and both of us agreed we were ready for a new light.
We are also replacing this antique brass light (shown below) in our living room. It has beautiful details and patina, but doesn’t really go with my farmhouse style.
We need another light in the living room for a wall that doesn’t have one now, and three more lights in our bedroom.
So, here are my 15 favorite options. Five of the ten cost over $100, but that’s because they are AMAZING, and worth every penny. None are over $300.
The other ten each cost under $50, so they truly are very affordable for almost any budget.
I’ve included a nice selection of lights that would work throughout the house.
In a future post, I’ll share which lights we selected.
