I am always surprised by how much ceiling lights cost. Flush mount, semi flush, chandelier, gold, oil rubbed bronze. It is all so much information and so much money. I am always one to splurge on something here and there, but for some unbeknownst reason to me ceiling lights is something I cannot bring myself to spend a chunk of money on.

With that being said I adore decorating my home, from floor to ceiling. The finished product of a fully decorated room looks great. I am so picky with the ceiling lights because there is so many to choose from and also THE PRICE. Even looking at places like ebay, amazon, Target, places that are usually great ways to find a good deal the ceiling lights are still pricey.

I have found ways of cheating, buy used gold ceiling lights and paint black to match our oil rubbed bronze door handles. Our hallway lights were purchased from Craigslist, they were used. I like the look of semi flush apothecary lights. They have some great detail and bubbled looking glass. I bought them a while ago and painted them long before this blog was going so I have no before pictures, but the one below shows mainly what they looked like.
