My Best Find Yet!

Well, so far for this year, anyway.  When I saw this light that Courtney at French Country Cottage used in her home office and then saw the price she paid {$39.99}, I knew I wanted this for our master bedroom closet.

The stars were aligned when my hubby said last week, as he was packing for a business trip, that the light in the closet was crap.  We had a hard time distinguishing his charcoal gray slacks from black slacks.  Well, I couldn’t in good conscience let that happen again, so off to Lowe’s I went!  Up and down the aisles and I didn’t see the one Courtney got.  I was so disappointed and had just about given up when I decided to go through a cut through aisle they have.  Lo and behold, it was full of clearance lights and this is what I found.

Gorgeousness!  It was meant to be ~ the look for me and, for hubby ~  it takes a 100 watt bulb!

As if that wasn’t enough, look at how much it was.

Yup; $10.00 because it was a display model.  I got that thing in my cart so fast I’m amazed I didn’t break it!

Bargain extreme. And such a perfect little light. But packs a punch with 100 watts.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

When I first saw your photo, I thought this is the same light that Amy at Masion Decor used! I tried to find that light months ago at my local Lowes and they no longer had one! I was so disappointed! Good for you, Kathy. And what a great price, too. You made me laugh with how fast you put that beauty in your shopping cart!

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Awesome score on the price and of course I LOVE the light!! ;) It is pretty cool that it takes the higher watt bulb too- makes it perfect for using in any room!! Thanks for letting me know you found one! :)

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

Holy Cow! That was the deal of the century! And it is such a beautiful light too...I would love one in our master closet too as we have an ugly boob light in there that doesn't give very good light! Love it Kathy! Angie xo

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

I can just imagine you getting in your buggy pretty darn fast at that price.
