If It Ain’t Broke…

Mr. Gray and I are both very project-oriented. We can’t sit on our satisfaction long. Whether it’s the house, the yard, school, or whathaveyou, we don’t do static. 

Our latest project was changing out the light fixture in the kitchen. 

This light has been hanging in the kitchen since we moved into the house. It wasn’t my favorite then, and I’m glad we finally got around to doing something about it. I dreamed of Edison lights or blown Mexican glass over our small, farm-style kitchen table (not pictured; I had already moved it for Mr. Gray’s ladder by the time I remembered to take a photo). In the nature of a comfort versus style-type battle, Mr. Gray proposed a much-needed, small ceiling fan for the area.

I was hesitant at first, but I think I like it. This photo has way too much backlight, so you can’t tell much about the fan itself. The hardware matches the rubbed bronze look of our cabinet pulls and the rest of the house. The wood is the same color as the cabinets. We toyed with farm-housing the fan up a little bit, but it appears the look I had in my head didn’t actually exist. I will not be responsible for creating a whole faux genre. I just don’t have the time to keep creating looks to add to it. 

I was promised Edison lights for our dining room in a compromise to get the fan. Be on the lookout for those photos. I’ve already got the fixture picked out!
