Small Space Lighting

I think because we use to live is such cramped quarters I'm happiest when dealing with the small little cubbies in our house. They small little nooks around are house are some of my favorite spaces.

Like this little nook off the front entrance. It holds the coat closet, and the powder room is off of it.


We've had this light fixture since our very first apartment right after we got married. I found this little chandelier at BOWRING on super clearance for $25. I had no where to put it so we kept it in a rubbermaid tote for a year. Then we moved into the Townhouse and tried it out in the dining room but it was too small, we tried it over the bed, it was WAY to small.


When we moved into this house, I immediately knew where it would hang. It had perfect proportions for the little nook.  HE was really easy to install, there was already a pot light there, so we just swapped out the pot light for the mini chandelier!


I love little touches in unexpected places!!! MY FAVORITE!

  14. Its like the Goldilocks of chandeliers! Now its just right. lol. It looks gorgeous in its new location and makes a possibly neglected nook, a real feature! I'm on the hunt for a small chandelier like that one for my laundry. Hubby thinks I'm mad, but hey, every doing the laundry should be glamorous.
