Let there be LIGHT!

The dressing room light from West Elm is INSTALLED! Jeremy - my beautiful and handy husband - put it in last night. I can see the light at the end of my long LONG tunnel called my dressing room.

The before was your standard, boring, simple light fixture - that I will love in our basement.


The after = FAB, GLAM, GORG!

In actuality - it is not as bright as the picture above - but that ain't nothing a higher wattage can't fix...right?!?! It's actually more like this...

One thing is for sure - it was super easy to install. Especially since we already had a plate for the box and all it needed was a quick coat of primer to turn it from black to white.

Thanks Emily for the comment about how easy it was to change from plug-in to hardwired - you were right! It was really easy and now I can't wait to move forward with the next house improvements. Either that or just pick out a pillow.

Do you have this light fixture? Do you love it? Do you wanna form a capiz club please? Cause I will join...for shezzell.

Wow, Jeremy works much faster than Mr. B. I love our Capiz - ours is white and it's in our master. We put the 60 watt bulb in that, but have two bedside lamps that add extra light. Count me in the club.

I loooooooove this light fixture. I lust madly after it, actually. Since we're apartment dwellers AND have no girl-land I can't have it yet. The husband has deemed it "too girly" so instead it's on my desktop background and I enjoy it from afar. ;)
