A Foto Light for a Beach Cottage from the Swedish Boutique aka IKEA
Thu 22nd, Aug, 2013
Well, would you Adam and Eve it Beach Cottage friends, we have not one but three lights over the dining room table….it’s only taken me one hundred and sixty five years to get my act together and get some little lights in place in this space….
You know that thing I always say on here, like why didn’t I do this ages ago? Yup, yes sirrreeeeeee Mr President, this is one of those momentous, infamous moments in my life when sigh, up went the lights and oooh said me.
Now I’ve already rambled on endlessly about how I needed a shed full of lights for this old cottage and that every single one I came across was either not right or extremely not budget friendly.
So one day, at the Swedish Boutique, aka IKEA and also the place of my peely kitchen drawers, I was shopping for a chair…when I came home with a car boot full, literally of lights….
Since then it has taken forever to actually get someone to turn up to fit the darn things but now that they are in, wowzas I wish I’d been a bit quicker off the mark in getting these up because my oh my oh me oh my does the whole dining room just look well….finished!
Now, there was a slight bit of a problem here, we all know I beat small children and large teenagers about the head with a whitewashed oar if anyone snaps on an overhead light in this old place so I was thinking would three of these things be way way way too much for my liking?
Well, nope, these are low enough so that they just light up the table and make it look all glowy and soft and happy and lovely…yep that is possible even in the rattiest old cottage in Sydney…
To say I am pleased with these for the budget I had is an understatement. Good old IKEA does it again in this old cottage.
Let’s just hope they don’t peel like my units did or I’ll have to hit someone else over the head with that oar.
p.s. there has been a rumour that little old Mrs BC is sponsored by IKEA…but alas, no, tis not true ;-), if it were I’d be moving into the Tempe store, eating meatballs for breakfast and tablescaping all day long roflmao but instead I must find myself cleaning toilets and washing the undergarments of teenagers.
