New lights & Fresh paint = A Huge difference

Hello Fellow Pinners!

This project has taken a good deal of time since our summer began.  We have began working on our basement.  Our stairway to our basement had one sconce and no railing.  The hallway needed a lot of work fixing dings, dents, and really bad patch jobs!  Justin spent hours filling holes, sanding, and retexturing.  We painted our ceilings white and picked a lighter color for the walls.  We found three really neat light pendants at Menards for under $30 each and a really pretty sconce at Lowe’s for about $30.  I love the Edison bulbs and the somewhat “farmhouse/rustic” feel they give the hallway.  We painted our handrail to match the accent color wall in our basement.  I absolutely love how it turned out.

This project was a huge amount of work for my husband and father-in-law!  They did all of the electric work over a long weekend.  I am so excited to host our first gathering with this project done.  I wish I had remembered to take before pictures.

I found the inspiration for our lighting styles on my “Our First Home” Pinterest Board.

Keep on Pinning!
