Let There Be Light

The other day my husband doubted me.  I know, right?! The nerve.  Actually he had been doubting me for months...

Don't worry, it wasn't the dramatic, marriage ending sort of doubt.  Just the maybe if I ignore her she'll stop making that stupid suggestion sort of doubt.

We both agreed that we needed to install a sconce in the kitchen above the table.  We agreed that it needed to happen soon because the Ikea clip lamp just wasn't cutting it.  We also agreed that the lights we loved weren't quite in the budget for now. 

This is what we had...

The doubt crept in when hubby didn't believe I could turn an $18 exterior light from Home Depot into a kinda cute,  perfectly acceptable placeholder until our light budget got a raise.

After tripping over the light box for months in the garage, this quirk we have of actually wanting to see the food we're eating and a promise from me that if he hated it we'd switch it out...he finally surrendered.

Supplies

Galvanized steel exterior light from Home Depot

Twine, ribbon, yarn of your choice

Glue gun

Kinda cute and a perfectly acceptable placeholder.  Not bad for under $20, eh? 

I do believe my husband has finally seen the light...  

(sorry I had to do it)
