The house. Not a dooby. Just thought I'd be specific.
So I decided what I wanted and there was no talking me out of it. I wanted this beauty from Barn Light Electric.
$138 a piece, not including shipping. Boo. I almost bought two of them about 5 times. But the DIYer in me thought there had to be a cheaper way.
Turns out there is. I found these lights for $30 a piece at Lowes (they have the same ones at Home Depot).
I just spray painted them the red color I wanted. They look exactly like the ones I wanted but $63.00 instead of $276.00 not including shipping. I almost painted them yellow but thought I might get sick of that quickly.
I taped off the inside so I'd have a straight line. It took about 30 minutes to dry and they were ready to hang.
Imagine the possibilities! Buy this light (which is white on the inside by the way) and it can be whatever color you want if you paint it yourself. And cheap too!
As you can see, I decided to put the picket fences above the cabinets and I LOVE it. I just need to find more chippy ones for the front of my house.
And one last close up...
