So, like I was saying in my previous post. I came across this awesome website, www.barnlightoriginals.com, and I am now smitten. Their lights are just what I was looking for! They are vintage-y yet new! Like I always say, I love the rustic look, but I am not a fan of antiquated rust and the hassle of dealing with used items. What if they’re haunted or something. You know, when I was growing up in the Midwest back in the 70′s, there was a house in our block that was old and abandoned. It was an old two-story Victorian home that looking back on it now, looks like it might have been a beautiful home at one point. But the roof was caving in on it, and all we kids saw was an old haunted house. Every time we would walk passed it, we would get the chills and run as fast as we could to get away from it. So anyway, this house was creepy looking, and I think this is where I got the idea instilled in my head that old, used objects are haunted and creepy. But it doesn’t take away the fact that I love old, classic looking things. So this is why I am absolutely in love with BarnLight Originals. All of their lights have that vintage look without them being actually vintage, and they are made exactly how you order them. I ordered my very first lights from them just last week, and I should be getting them within the next couple of weeks. At first I thought that having to wait three weeks for lights was ridiculous. We live in a time when everything is instantaneous, and if you want something now, you get it now. But then I realized that my light is actually special, and it is made-to-order, and the best part is that all of their products are made in America. So without any further ado, here is the light I bought for my bathroom:
It’s called the Mini Yuma Moonshiner. It measures 6 inches wide, and it’s 6.5 inches high, so I see why they call it a mini, since most of their shades are as big as 27 inches wide. I’m going to place it right above the bathroom mirror. I only bought one, but now that I think about it, I think I should have gotten two. The only problem is I’d have to call my electrician and see if it’s possible. But then again, anything is possible with money–so the problem is the cost really. But first I should first see how a single Moonshiner looks. That sounds funny, doesn’t it? It looks like they have a sense of humor over at BarnLight Originals. And another great thing about them is that they have a very informative blog that I started reading. They talk about anything from government restrictions on lights to the different color finishes they offer. It’s wonderful! I recommend it!
