Office Lighting

The office light was originally a Ikea Erbium ceiling light that the moment a truck drove by would shake and rattle so hard you thought it was going to explode and rain glass down on your head.

Not only was the light noisy, it was also b.o.r.i.n.g. So we needed to change things up.

We needed a fancy, pretty, shiny new light.

I started looking at Barn Light Electric‘s offerings and lusted after their Flush Mount Warehouse Pendant

I dreamed about  the Cimarron Pendant

And I swooned over School House Pendant “The Volusia”.

Then I realized I had already long ago spent the whole budget for the room on the makings of the bookcase and the desk, and I had NO budget left for lights. That meant that buying from Barn Light Electric, shipping to Canada, and then paying brokerage & duty fees was not going to be a feasible endeavor. Enter sad sad Kristen face.

So ‘pretty’, ‘new’, and/or their friends ‘shiny’ and ‘fancy’ were out of the question. We needed something cheap.

We just so happened to have a random light we took down from our bedroom sitting around taking up space and we swiftly swapped it out. It’s better, its not great, but will make do for now. The room has so much natural light from the giant skylight, that the light wouldn’t be on much anyways. So here it is, the new old light.

Moving forward I will be daydreaming about changing it out for one of the lusty Barn Light Electric lights.

Yeah…I’m a lighting loving weirdo, I know…
