It may have taken Ashley Mellott and her husband six years to fully tackle their kitchen reno, but now that it’s over, and she has a gorgeous light fixture above the table where her busy family of five eats most of its meals, she couldn’t be happier.
“The finishing touch to this space didn’t come, however, until a full six years after we moved in and it came in the form of that beautiful (Feiss) vintage lighting fixture that hangs above the kitchen table,” she wrote on her iloveyoumorethancarrots.com blog.
This is the second project on which eFaucets has collaborated with Mellott, and we agree that she chose the perfect fixture to complement her space. Click here to read about her dining room DIY featuring a glamorous Crystorama chandelier.
When the family moved into their home six years ago, the cabinets had been glazed (painted?) a peachy-pink color and Mellott didn’t think she could get rid of them fast enough. Instead of tearing them out and starting fresh, though, she recognized their solid construction and decided to paint them white to kick off the neutral farmhouse pallet and style she envisioned.
Next came the hardwood floors and granite counter tops with tones and movement that bring the dark colors of the floor and the white of cabinets together nicely. Finally, the white subway tile back splash with grey grout was installed, and Mellott turned her attention to lighting.
She chose the Feiss fixture because its wrought iron elements echoed the farmhouse look she wanted while the Edison-style bulbs created a nice bridge between the past and the present.
“A nod to the true olden days, the Edison bulbs really give the Feiss Urban Renewal chandelier from eFaucets a truly authentic feel and I love how it ties together the rustic accents that we have going on throughout the kitchen,” the post continues. “With so many different and distinct options, it was really hard to narrow down my top three favorites! Ultimately I’m so glad I chose the one I did and I love sitting beneath it as a family when we gather for dinner each night.”
