A little shady.

Happy Wednesday!  

I have a tiny little upgrade to share with you today: my kitchen light fixture.  Here it is before (sorry for the quality of some of the pictures).

I really did not like this light fixture: it's too dated and just not attractive.  But I also did not want to replace the entire thing because I'm only renting the place.  So I looked under the shade and realized a simple swap of the shade would be a quick easy fix.  Yay.  Love that.  I headed to IKEA and found the Rogsta wicker shade for just about $10 (I can't find it on their website - bummer).  

I loved the texture of the shade as well as the color: it's a bleached natural color - not quite white but not quite natural. Very beachy, which you know I love.  I think it will look great in the kitchen once I get around to painting the chairs white and adding upholstery to the seats.  Even now, without those upgrades, it makes a huge difference in the kitchen. See?

What do you think?  Have you guys done any recent minor tweaks that make a major impact?  Please share! 

See you swoon,

  1. I love it!!! This isn't recent, but I remember when we changed the knobs and handles on our kitchen cabinets it made such a huge impact.
