Some Copper Stuff

After browsing the local hardware stores for light fixtures and seeing what prices they charge for the most basic of hardware, Andrea and I decided to also look online on Etsy. Now I know what you’re thinking,”that’s super hipster” or “you’re a fool.” Well, eat it! I don’t want to pay $60 for a simple chord and light; instead, I would rather pay $50 for a chord and a light with a cover that is the look and feel that is appropriate for its space. Wheeew. So anyways, a picture of what we picked up from Etsy for approx. $50 is the featured image (you guessed it). It’s a simple copper light with a copper canopy to cover the electrical box in the ceiling. It also came with mounting hardware (copper of course) and a nice letter from the owner of the Etsy Store: Illuminate Vintage. After seeing this fixture, and its construction, I was pretty impressed. In the future I might look at some of their other options:

They have many options, but I’m kinda sold on the copper look. I think it will go well with the blue theme in the house as a nice accent. Anyways, my tip is to not settle for common store bought stuff that is overpriced. Instead, pay the same price for something made in the United States by a small business. I’m digging this Etsy thing and I think you should check it out too.
