light bulb switcheroo

Yes, I’m actually devoting a post to switching out light bulbs. 
It’s the little things that make me happy sometimes.  Kinda like when I purchased a new soap dispenser for my kitchen.  I swear I washed my hands more often that day than any other, just because I liked the smell of the new soap and looking at its pretty little glass dispenser.
Remember the chandelier I hung up in the dining room several months ago?
Well the poor thing was given the leftover bulbs from the old chandelier.  I know, the horror!!!  I kid, I kid.  But, I’ve been loving the look of the round bulbs instead of the typical tapered bulbs and finally remembered to pick some up while at the home improvement store.  It usually goes like this, “I’ve got to get this, this, this, and those stinking bulbs I forgot about last time.”  Only to get to the car with my purchases, sans the bulbs AGAIN.
No longer!
I give you, my new bulbs.
I know, I know, it’s really not that big of a deal.  But, I really think it looks so much better with those cute little round orbs, and now they mimic the drop on the bottom of the chandelier. 
It was meant to be 😉
And just in case you’re wondering, I’ve not pulled out the Christmas decoration since my last post.  But, I did get one step closer to finishing the basement bath.  I’ll take a win when I can get it!

    LOVE the look with those new bulbs! It really does change the whole look of the thing. Much more contemporary and 'finished' somehow.

    They really go great with the round chandelier and the hanging piece. It's the little things to girls like us- no shame in that!
