Lighting the Farmhouse Lounge

 I decided that I might as well finish all the lighting on the ground floor so I don't have to keep taking everything out of the Farmhouse every time I add a light.

I've made three little lights and hung them together in the lounge. 

Lights are very hard to photograph when they're lit up!

There's a matching single light in the front entry way through the French doors there.

The lights look silver when they're off. 

And (hopefully) mercury glass-ish when they're on.

'Poor man's silver'!

There's a chandelier in the formal dining room which I made when I did the Valentine's Day scene. 
I was doing everything I could to avoid making a chandelier - because they're very fiddly things to make. 
But the dining room was just screaming out for one!

Now I'm looking for inspiration for lights in the rest of the Farmhouse!

Thank you for all your comments on the Kitchen Lights post, so glad you like them!

Lighting the Farmhouse kitchen

I made these tiny mason jar lights for the kitchen a very long time ago. 
Figuring out how to install them has taken some time!

I've coloured the jars slightly aqua.

There's also a light in the pantry - which is still waiting to be filled.

I had installed a little chandelier above the dining table but I was never thrilled with the way it looked.

Someone was throwing out this metal lamp shade. 
I transformed it into a verdigris copper light fixture.

There's still a lot more to be done!
