A Light Change

Hi Friends!

Here is our light fixture in the eating area in the kitchen.
Cute, weathered black right up my alley!
Even better, I bought it from a home improvement store on sale.
It was only $15.00!

But, it needed a little something like all us girls know!

It's pretty but, I felt like it needed a little "jewelry".

Some cute paper shades with black birds (there I go with birds again!)
Some red and clear crystals dripping down.

I like the mix of the casual shades with the chic crystals.
What do you think?

It gets even better.
I found 2 sconces on sale, different store, same design!
I topped those with black silk shades and they are on either side of our fireplace in the Family Room!
They are the same but still a little different so it's not too matchy. 
It's fun to get a bargain and still change it up to really make it your own! 

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon!
