I was at Home Depot (again) today and I looked at these lights (again):
What I don’t like about these is that the one I saw at Home Depot on display doesn’t hang straight!! I asked an employee about it and he said that sometimes you can straighten them by turning the little bulb-holder inside the bell shade, but sometimes they can’t be straightened as it is seed glass and not always completely balanced in weight. So! I haven’t bought them yet. I also prefer a solid rod that suspends the light rather than the cord look that comes with this one.
This one will probably win, unless I can’t get them balanced looking. The crookedness would drive me nuts. I do like it a lot and it is $70 so much more affordable than some.
I have pinned a few others that are of interest.
This one from lighting direct.
This one from Ikea. (Again the cord thing though…not liking that look)
Lighting direct again.
I keep coming back to this one too, from Overstock (I like the schoolhouse look but I think it would look too big in the kitchen):
I think in the end I’ll probably go with a schoolhouse one or the first bell pendant. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on them as we’re not planning to live here forever, but I do want it to fit in with the style of our home and look updated.
I have decided on cabinet hardware! Yay!
