Light 'n up!

When I redid my living and dining rooms several years ago I sold the old metal ceiling lights to an antique dealer. I removed the one in my entry too because it matched the others. Since then I have had this generic light. I've always had my eye out for something better and I found it at a liquidation store on Tuesday. This beautiful pendant stained glass fixture just jumped right out at me.
I couldn't wait to get home and put it up! I have no patience when I get something new. I didn't have supper until 7 o'clock because I had to hang the light first.
The hardest part was finding the right color paint in my unmarked paint stash. (Note to self: Mark what room you used the paint in before storing it!)
The other light was much larger and the room had been painted since I bought it.
I absolutely love this light! It is perfect in every way. The color is perfect, I could hang it at the right level so the door didn't hit it, the size is just right for this small area and the brown finish matches my other fixtures. On top of all that it was less than $30.!
