This past weekend, we took a little trip to Charlotte to visit IKEA. Oh, how I’ve missed my Atlanta IKEA store! Sometimes it’s nice just to walk around and see what’s new and enjoy a cinnamon roll or icecream…yum! We ended up buying a few things, one of which was a new light for the dining room turned study. This is the first room you see when you come in through the front door and the garage, and the lighting definitely did not make a great 1st impression. We had already added an accent wall to create a little “wow” in this space, but it still needed something else. Here’s the original light fixture, since this room was intended to be a dining room.
My husband replaced it with a simple builder’s fixture, since we weren’t going to have a dining table under it.
So boring! My husband and I have loved the PS Maskros Pendant Lamp from IKEA for a long time. Since we were already in the store picking up some other things, we thought “why not?”. My husband took down the old fixture and replaced it with the Maskros, and here’s how it looks in the space now.
I think it looks great! It makes so much more of an impact in the space. I love the shadow pattern it creates on the walls and ceilings. So much better than the builder light…thank you, IKEA!
