Star Light, Star Bright, First Star...is My Kitchen Light

Pin It


A
 quick little change in the kitchen changed this builder's over-the-sink brass lighting nightmare....




into a dreamy night under the stars (well, at least one star)....



It casts a great glow and interesting pattern on the walls....



It even looks cool in the daytime...



It makes doing dishes a dream.

Seriously.

Okay, you know me too well. Totally kidding! Dishes...blech.

  11. I love the Moravian star light! (Isn't that what they're called?) Anyhoo...the only thing that makes doing the dishes a dream is when someone else is doing 'em!

  12. Yeah! Hubby figured out why I couldn't comment and fixed it for me.

    I love the star lamp. It looks much better than the previous lamp.

  16. Oh I love that star! When we lived in Winston-Salem, Moravian stars were everywhere. Just lovely, although doing dishes being a dream is a bit of a stretch, I think. ;)

  22. I went back and looked at pictures of your amazing kitchen makeover! It is fabulous! You guys did a great job! I had no idea you lived in manufactured housing, like me! Don't you just love it?

    Sorry I haven't been to visit for a while, seems I am always so busy! I have got to slow my life down and stop to smell the roses! You have been my inspiration this morning, THANK YOU!

  27. Where did you find your star light???? I've only seen them online. I've even gone to lighting showrooms with no luck. I LOVE star lights. Looks great where you have it. I want to hand one in my entryway.
