Battle Lighting Continues!

Out of the 16 or so rooms in this house, only 7 have over head lighting. This tally does not include the creepy little rooms although they do have over head lighting, which makes me shake my head at any former electrician that came into this house and thought "oh yes, tiny creepy rooms need light but bedrooms? Nahhhhh!" but I digress...

We've finally come to a decision on how we'd like to design the bedroom:

Of course no canopy though because even though the fire place could hide a whale, you have to duck to walk through a door. Once we decided on the general theme of course my first purchase was:
Low ceiling be damned!!!

It is way harder to find a plug in chandelier than I originally though. We've decided to go with wall sconces and floor lamps for most of the unlit rooms. Breaking into the horse hair walls for a rewire would be more hassle then it's worth plus I'm completely ok with not knowing what is back there.

When we first moved in, we didn't realize that most of the rooms lacked lighting because we were never really here in the dark. So as a result, in a panic, we went out and bought a bunch of these.

Only to realize later on how completely butt ugly they are. I'll try to redo a few, maybe move a few to the basement...So we will see their fate later.

This time around we went back and bought 3 more floor lamps.

2 of these, in the white color. I do like the added reading lamp.

One of these. And this....

Because it's yellow! And really, who doesn't like yellow? Unhappy people, that's who!!

I have no idea where these will go as of right now, I'm just happy to put a dent in the dark for now.
