If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I ditched my cute Pottery Barn Mason Jar light fixtures above our dining table last week. I still love those fixtures, but they didn’t work quite right with the new sunroom lighting.
So I grabbed these simple black barn light style pendants from Wayfair.
I was totally excited about hanging them and putting on my electrician hat (I don’t really have a hat, but I have done some successful electrical work in my day, and by successful, I mean I didn’t electrocute myself or wind up with a permanent Marge Simpson hairdo…).
I got the one light up no problem and then went to the hang the next one, when I realized I goofed up big time. The lights touched each other. Yeah, it was not a cute look. My old lights hung closer together, because they were smaller and I didn’t take this into account when I ordered the new ones.
Thankfully one of my dad’s friends is an electrician and he popped over and moved it over 6 inches for me. Crisis averted with minimal grumping from the Mr. since he didn’t have to try to attempt the project himself.
I love that they have the same barn light feel that the sunroom fixtures have and they go well with the new mudroom lights too.
Pardon the gloomy weirdly lit photo, it will not stop raining here! I’m hoping to see some dry weather tomorrow, so I can get all my flower boxes planted and share some of my tips and tricks for those next week.
Here’s how they looked last year, crossing my fingers for another good batch of flowers this year too!
In the meantime I’ll just enjoy my cute new perfectly spaced lights.
