Home | Out With the Old Lights

We are slowly making updates to our outdated 90's ranch.  This home is full of yellow/orange oak, metal blinds, heavily spackled walls, and stained, off-white carpet. Although, we can't change the knock-down on the walls we are taking small bites at the rest of the home.  Painting has really helped lighten up this place and give it a fresh, clean feel, but there's so much more to tackle.

I had already updated the light over the kitchen table and our foyer lights, but the can lights in the kitchen were really messing up the aesthetic.  I didn't know how I would change the lights without needing an electrician to come and do it for me, which isn't really in our reno budget, so I was thrilled when I stumbled across Worth Home Products.  They provide instant pendant lights and let me tell you... they are so easy to install!

Take a look and make sure you check out the discount at the bottom of this post and a few "before" pictures!

To install these fixtures, you unscrew the can light bulb and screw in the pendant- that's it!  They look nice and give it the rustic-industrial feel I was going for.  I replaced one can light over our kitchen sink with this fixture and our bar top lights were replaced with this fixture which is a little less substantial compared to the kitchen sink fixture.  

 These three fixtures made such a difference to our kitchen space and I have had so many people ask about them, so I wanted to blog the details for everyone.  If you are wanting to make quick updates to your space without going overboard- check out these lights!!!

I'm excited to share a sweet deal with you all!  If you are wanting to purchase a few fixtures from Worth Home Products I have a discount to pass along.  When you call (713-660-0025) and order over the phone and mention The Quick Journey blog you will get a 15% discount on all of their products!!!  So run fast and grab this great deal!  If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way and I will answer them as best as I can!


 (forgive the mess... keeping it real!) ;)
