I'm a researcher. I can get lost in google for hours, shopping for deals, reading reviews. Ask Steph, he leaves all the vacation planning to me. I can answer all his questions about the destination before we've even been there. Another example? We recently decided to buy a Nespresso.. I read everything I could find about them for a little while. Have any questions? I'm well versed.
So why am I telling you this? Well, because I spent a lot of time looking at lighting and trying to find the "perfect" combination of one overhead light and two sconces for our new bathroom. I found a lot that I really liked and some that I loved. Most of them fairly expensive, isn't that always the way?
In the end, I couldn't make a decision and took the easy route by shopping local. All that time searching and I found something that did the trick right here in PEI (Kent Building Supplies, for those that are curious).
The sconces I chose were both affordable and accessible. I had them bought and up on the wall in an afternoon which is quite satisfying for a girl who does a lot of shopping online and is always waiting for orders. They aren't what I was dreaming of, but at the end of a renovation, you start to be happy with what you can afford. Bathrooms are expensive, in case you didn't know:)
That being said, I need an overhead light to complement them. Currently, we have a light bulb hanging from the ceiling. I was thinking something square to mimic the square bases of the sconces, but apparently that is not particularly easy to find.
I'm also not opposed to something with a little bit of personality either. I'm not exactly sure what I mean by that but basically I'm open to suggestions. My only musts are that it must be chrome in finish and if it's sold online, they must ship to Canada. Which I've discovered, is sometimes half the battle!
Our mirror is being custom cut and I'm anxious to have that up on the wall. Right now, it's a lot of bare white walls! Little by little though.. things are coming together!
