Lest you all think I am completely incapable of a sentence or thought that doesn’t contain the words “baby” or “nursery”, today’s post is about our porch. Or the lighting on the porch to be precise. Currently, we have the ubiquitous and unimaginative boob light that came with the house.
I don’t have a picture handy of the light, but here’s a recentish pic of one side of the porch for a visual:
And yes, that is what is left of the craigslist vanity! The mirror part has been relegated to the basement :(
Not that it’s super high on our list of priorities (read it may not happen anytime in this century) but I’ve been keeping my eye out for the right pendant light.
But wow, you can’t argue with the price, $49.99 marked down from $199!
For some reason I have been stuck lately on the idea of a moravian star pendant, like this one from Ballard Designs:
Unfortunately, at max of 25 watts we might as well use a firefly to light up the porch.
Ballard also has this ceiling light version that is 40 watts that I quite like, but still, 40 watts max is pretty wimpy:
And that’s all I’ve been able to find so far that I like.
If you’ve seen any charming cottage porch like lighting anywhere, please post a link!
