I've been taking time off to spend with my folks at the cottage, but that doesn't mean we don't have a few projects up our sleeves. I've long been wanting to replace the rear porch light on the deck, and with Dad the electrician on premises, now seemed as good a time as any. Luckily, Dad loves a good project as much as I. Must be in the genes. (Photo via Ashley Brooks Designs / Barn Lighting)
On our morning bike rides through Orient town, I've been admiring gooseneck fixtures. For such a small change, it has BIG cottage appeal.
|Before | After|
I ordered the new light from Barn Lighting. It's their classic gooseneck fixture in black. The change was pretty dramatic. You can see now that the fixture we replaced was too small scale for the house.
Plus, the new gooseneck light matches the style of the shed we had built a few years back, which has black hinges and school bell. Once we shingle the back of the house, it will all come together.
