In our house nothing stays in the same place for long, change is as good as a rest right? We even have summer and winter curtains. I constantly move or swap lamps and small pieces of furniture around. Sometimes daily! I bet I am not the
only one that does this? My latest victims were the kitchen pendant lights, they have been updated and turned into jam jar lights we love them!
The kitchen and 3 Jam Jar Lights
Our kitchen has slowly evolved into one of my favourite rooms in the house. it is our ‘boudoir kitchen’ We decorated it on a tiny budget, three years ago. Everything was bought in the sales, the tiles were even bought with Tesco’s vouchers. The work tops were leftover from a project and were gifted to us. If we were doing it today I would choose differently, but ‘needs must’ as they say!
Imagine then, how excited I was at the prospect of choosing new kitchen lighting from
I wanted something new, bright, fun and simple. I also wanted Marc to put up and use the industrial fixtures he had stashed away in his man cave and I had my eye on some bright blue vintage style, woven cable too.
We had three pendant lights in the kitchen before, they were blue glass ones and cost £2.00 each in a sale. However they really have ‘had their day’ They were looking tired and dated.
Here are the old kitchen lights ‘before’ …
They are arranged by length, and are lower over the central table. We all love them, they have a cute little owl on them too if you look carefully. The best thing? They only cost £18 pounds each! personal style is not about spending money ya know..?
As usual Marc did an excellent job of putting up the industrial fittings. Galvanised metal and brass fittings. We love them so much. I would call this style Industrial rustic!
The Jam Jar lights by Night
I am more than happy with the result. They are lovely in the evening too, they like glowing lanterns of warmth and it is so lovely to see some refreshing change once more.
Thank you iconic lights! I truly adore them. Another piece of the jigsaw that is our evolving home, fits perfectly into place.You know when something is fab because it looks like it has been there forever the moment you put it up. Am I right?
I would so love to know what you think, although I know my ‘mad hatter’ colourful style is not for everyone?
Ps. This is a collaborative post, I was gifted the lights for review purposes
