Lights, camera, not much action

It’s been slow going with all the final elements to go on the house before handover.

The last few weeks we saw the electrical and plumbing get finished off, each with their own mini dramas. The joys of building or renovating!

Firstly, the pendant lights I picked out months ago, which were super cool, looked crap. What a pain in the butt! I had to head back to Beacon Lighting at Kawana with three hungry, tired, messy kids and pick out something that didn’t look like horse flies buzzing around the kitchen bench from the other side of the room. Seriously, the original pendants were cool, but way too small for the space.

Thanks to a few buddies on Instagram for wicked advice and reassurance on the new pendants. Having never bought anything more than a lightbulb, the pendant light thing was a bit daunting.

What do you think? These bad boys set us back about $90 each and the bulb was another $10. These are instead of down lights, which is what is throughout the rest of the house, and be bright enough to make me look like I know what I am doing in the kitchen.
