Lighting Giveaway and Announcement!

Sharing is caring!

I have a thing for lighting.  For me, the kind of lighting in a space makes a big impact on how I feel when I’m in there.

For example, big, bright, overhead flourescent lights make me want to crawl into a hole and never come out.

Soft, glowing table lamps make me want to curl up and read a good book.

Shiny, glamorous chandeliers make me want to dance the waltz.

Is anybody with me?

Paying attention to the lighting in a space is a really important step in any room design plan. Luckily, if you’ve messed up that step before or inherited room lighting you don’t like, changing it isn’t that hard. Simple lighting switches can go a long way towards changing the entire feel of a room.

Given my slight obsession with lighting, you can imagine that I was pretty excited when the online lighting store, contacted me about helping promote their shop.

I wasn’t familiar with ParrotUncle, so I took some time to browse their online inventory.  I saw so many lamps and fixtures that I loved! Like this wooden pendant chandelier:


and this adjustable metal floor lamp (which I really want to get for my office area makeover!)


I think my favorite section of their shop though is their extensive pendant light section. has many more pendant lights in various styles (glass, wood, modern, etc) to browse through, many at 50% off.

Swapping out a recessed light or plain, flushed mount ceiling light for a pendant light is a super easy–and often inexpensive–major style update.

Jenna at Jenna Burger Designs shows just how easy swapping out a recessed light for a pendant light really is.


Pamela at PB&J Stories makes a similar change in her kitchen. This is the “Before” photo,


and now the “After.”


Do you have your own space that could use a quick update by swapping out an old fixture with a great pendant light?

My Exciting Announcement!

So now onto the announcement portion of this post . . . After the first of the year I will be releasing an Ebook!

I have been working on writing this for about 8 months now, and we are in the final stages of formatting.  I have received soooooo many questions over the (almost) 4 years of running this blog about how I started my furniture business, so I decided to compile everything I have learned into one, simple resource. I have already shared it with a few people and have been so encouraged by their thoughtful reviews and comments.

One reader said she felt like she now knew everything she needed to know and was finally ready to take the first step in starting her own furniture flipping business. That one comment alone made my heart do a little leap!  I really want to offer helpful information to people and I believe Furniture Flipper will be a great way to do that.

If you are a Lost & Found subscriber at the time of the Ebook’s release (currently set for early January), you will have the opportunity to download the book for FREE for a short window of time.  I want to say “Thank You” to all of you who have been on this journey with me and give you the opportunity to access the book at no cost.  So, if you would like that chance, be sure to subscribe today!

Stay tuned for more information in coming weeks, and be sure to enter the great giveaway above. Please pass it along too!

Lighting scares me. It's a pain to put up, and it's not cheap, so it feels like a big commitment. As a result I usually err on the side of small and more understated.

I really like the light you are offering in the giveaway. I would use in my laundry room or over my kitchen sink. Ummm...can't decide. Love your posts!

Thank you for sharing this giveaway with us. I really like the rustic industrial lighting. It adds extra ambiance to rooms that sometimes wouldn't work with ordinary lighting.
