Updated Kitchen Lighting

Bradley installed a new light over the kitchen sink for me.  While he was at it, he wired some under-cabinet lighting into the same switch.  We have really missed the under-cabinet lighting that we had at our old house for the past three years living here.

I don’t have a before picture, but the light over the sink was an ugly florescent tube light that was attached to a board behind a faux cabinet panel.  The faux panel is still there – it gives a nice connected look to the cabinetry – but we now have a pendant light hanging down from behind it.  It is exactly what I imagined for the space.

I’ve also been working on painting the downstairs a warm grey (SW Requisite Grey at 75%).  The color left by the previous owner (Behr’s Gobi Desert) was too gold with a red undertone and looked really bad with my new dining room chairs.  Our next project for this kitchen will be adding a backsplash.

For comparison, here is a side-by-side before and after shot:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
