Add Personality with Salvaged Lighting Fixtures

65SS-Light2

Our roving salvage correspondent Nancy Ranchel has a great piece posted on the NW Renovations blog about how to add personality to your home through salvaged vintage lighting fixtures. Here’s a quote:

Next time you need a new sconce or dome light, try thinking outside the (big) box (store). Anybody can buy those lights! You want something different. You didn’t realize it before, but you do. You want something old. Something used, refurbished, re-wired.

And I’m here to help you! While new is good, and it certainly has its place (new underwear comes to mind), it can lack character. And there’s also the danger of new being homogenous. Homogenized milk is good. Homogenized light fixtures are not. They are — what’s that word? Oh yeah, boring. Turning to the old stuff will personalize your space, and it’s easier on the environment. Read the whole story here.

While you’re there, keep an eye out for the June/July issue, featuring a story on outdoor kitchens featuring some fun Arciform projects.

Enjoy the holiday weekend everyone!
