Decisions, Decisions…

Last week I asked for advice about

which direction I should run the boards

on my laundry room beadboard ceiling.

Most of you suggested I run them the length of the room.

But I went against the majority

and ran the boards the width of the room.
See Beadboard Ceiling

Yeah, I’m such a rebel..

Then I asked your opinions

about which light fixture
would work best in the laundry room.
See Lighting in the Laundry.

The majority of you chose the schoolhouse light.

And my decision is…

A drumroll please…

World Imports Lighting 9007-37 Luray 1-Light Semi-flush Light Fixture, Satin Nickel

The Schoolhouse Light!

I decided to go with the brushed nickel finish

instead of the oil rubbed bronze

because all the metal

(except those scratched up brass hideous doorknobs)

are brushed nickel.

I think it is a cleaner look overall.

It will provide adequate lighting for the space

and it’s probably a quarter of the price of the

But because I am insane
and can’t stick with a decision,
I found another one I like and now
I am deciding between the two
schoolhouse lights!

I know, there are so much alike
but I always have to make things difficult for myself!

So after I stare at them a little more,
I will order one and have it hung by the next time you see that room!
I am sure you are sick of hearing about that laundry room by now!

But I wanted to thank you all for your opinions.
Sometimes it’s helpful
to have some fresh eyes take a look at something!

When you ask for opinions,
do you already have a decision in mind?

Or do you consider all the advice you get?

    Love these lights, I really need new ones in our house, they are still from the 70's! 🙂 I have missed so much being gone, your room is looking beautiful and Rosie is getting so big! I hope things are starting to fall into a routine with her.xoxo

    Mmmm…I'm leaning toward the second, but since they are both pretty similar, I will definitely like whichever you pick. 🙂 I must not like advice very much, because I tend to rarely ask for it! haha I guess I'm afraid of opening pandora's box. I usually just ask google instead. 🙂
