Redecorating before the house is built??? Am I crazy??

Ok I have a confession to make.  The house is only been started (just have a basement due to FREAKING WEATHER DELAY AGAIN!!!!), but I find myself already redecorating!  I mean come on…..there is no house yet…LOL.  One thing I am looking at changing once we are in the house is some lighting.  We went with a popular builder and they only have like a couple choices and if you want you can hand them your wallet “upgrade” to a more expensive style.  We just decided we would put them in after the fact.  That was it was cheaper and we could salvage the new lights they put in.  One area I want to talk about today is the lights above the kitchen sink.  Right now there will be two can lights or recessed lights.  I am looking at changing them out for a couple hanging lights.  I have seen this done in so many houses and I absolutely LOVE it!!!  I have googled this morning and came up with a couple styles I kinda like…(still looking):

I absolutely love this next one!!!!!!

Morningside One Light Hanging Pendant in Grecian Bronze   


The options and styles are absolutely endless!!!!!  IF you want to search for some yourself just type in “hanging pendant” in to google search and away you go!


As for the rest of the lights in the house I am sure they will get a nice coat of  Krylons “Brushed Metallic” finish!!!

  Take a look at THRIFT DECOR CHICK’s ORB LOVE  post to see what I am talking about!! 

Or go to OUR SUBURBAN COTTAGE to see how she tested several types of spray paints!  Again the options are endless!!

Here is a peek at what our dining area light will look like………



So do you all think I am crazy?  Please leave a comment on what you think or if you have some pendant lighting in your home leave us all a link so we can go check it out!!  So as for now try to stay warm with the new snow cover…….we are headed to the OUTLETS!!!  woohooooo, they have a Pottery Barn outlet there!  I can’t wait to go!  I will be showing pictures so stay tuned!

Till later~

I think you are so smart to shop Before. Then you won't get consumed at the end with all the little details :) I love the last one that is your favorite, I had picked that one out as well for my kitchen. Then home expo went out of biz and I picked up what was on sale. Thanks for your super nice e-mail, I'm so happy you stopped by, I love meeting new friends. Have a great day!
