Hall Bathroom Vanity Light

As I mentioned in my hall bathroom before and after post (here), I hadn’t changed the vanity light over the medicine cabinet but was planning on it.  I actually put it off for a while because everything I really liked didn’t really go in this bathroom.  All of the hardware is chrome, sorry if this offends anyone, but all of the chrome vanity lights that I was coming across seemed too basic for me.  Hence…

How about a basic look for less? (I swear people… I took 5 minutes to make up this post so far… its pretty easy to be basic)

Ok I’m done! So if you saw my sconce lighting look for less post HERE, you’ll notice none of the lights I picked were chrome… this was my problem.  I do like to mix different finishes and textures but I just didn’t think it would work well in this bathroom because everything else was already done.  I figured a different finish would stand out too much.  I did like the idea of vertical tube lights on either side of the mirror like this (obviously would find a cheaper one)…

But not only did I not want to mess up any more sheetrock and run more electrical wires but I also didn’t even have space to put one on the right side…

So after much searching… best resort? Etsy!  Where people make custom lights! I bought this bad boy HERE from Ind Lights for $63 with the bulbs! Sometimes you have to spend a little more to think out of the box! I’m sure most light makers would take on custom orders as well! I know I don’t mind taking on custom orders for shopellion!  Just like most of my house projects… I have to work with what I have and need to make the outcome perfect!  Plus, every creator loves a new change! You should check out their etsy store and website because they have LOTS of other cool lights.  Without further ado… before and after…
