A Vintage Crate + [work]

metal basket turned light fixture, and a window makeover

I've been wanting to update the light fixture above my kitchen sink for some time now. I finally found the perfect basket, purchased at a consignment store.

With just a little tweaking on the bottom, we got it to fit perfectly.

Here's the before, and the fixture I have hated for 6 years!

All we did was take the existing glass shade off and replace with the basket.

I also added some trim work around the window to dress it up.

I cleared off the junk that had been accumulating on the window ledge,

and added my pretty glass collection filled with pink flowers from my yard.

I love the frenchy farmhouse feel the new basket light gives the space.

I also added a few accessories around the sink.

See what a little {primp}ing can do for a small space?

Much better now.P.S. {Primp}, The Shoppe is now open! Just wanted to let you know I have opened an etsy shop which includes lots of yummy farmhouse goods, and fun items I have loved or would love in my own home. Here is a sneak peak at some of the goods:

Check out the fab etsy widget on the sidebar to see more items and to visit my shop.

My etsy name is MoshPosh because that's how I set it up years ago, and don't know how to change it. (Up until now I have only bought things on Etsy.) But I think the name actually fits the shop quite well, because I will have a mosh posh of items for you to browse.
