I still haven’t decided if I should put some type of light or chandelier over the small table and this area of the sunroom needed some type of artificial light source. My son has a wall light over the head of his bed that he made from an outdoor wall light that I liked. I tried to talk him out of it but he wouldn’t let me have it. So I went to the local Home Depot and purchased one very similar. His was silver galvanized which was purchased from Lowes but Home Depot carries the same style with a black finish.
Instead of installing it directly into the electrical system and using a light switch, I wanted to be able to move it myself it I wanted to. He purchased electrical lamp cord and a slider switch thingy. I would have preferred another color besides the gold but this was all I could find at the time.
I tucked the wire behind the map, letting the switch hang below it. To see more of the plantation map, click here.
I think the black fixture looks better than the galvanized one would have in this room.
I think the style and finish really fits in this room! It costs less than $30, which includes the light at $20 and the cord and switch. Thanks for stopping by!
