A few years ago we purchased our brand-new builder-grade home, and I was ecstatic that we were blessed with such a beautiful new home that had lots of design potential. While our home was new and fresh – it lacked style and character. It came with the standard builder-grade lights, cream-colored carpet, and cream-colored walls.
We have tackled a few projects in our home like installing some shelving, building a custom built-in entertainment system with cabinets and bookshelves (my hubby gets all the credit for that huge project, that I convinced him to build for me!), and changing a couple light fixtures.
I wasn’t happy with our dining room light (as it was the cheapest builder-grade option out there), so I started searching for some affordable farmhouse lighting options. Some of these options below were ones I considered, and the one I chose (this one) is from World Market. I waited for it to go on sale, and then used a coupon that I had in my inbox to reduce the price by another 15%. I scored it for around $90, what a steal! I also use Ebates to earn cash back on my purchases, yet another great way to increase your savings!
